Original mining rights document from Cuevas in the United States of Mexico signed by President Porfirio Diaz dated 1909. 23" x 17" (fully opened). This document is a request for official permits to work a Mexican mine named "La Escuadra" for silver and gold by its new owner Juan Sears (under the law of 1892), apparently approved and signed by various officers and President Diaz (who was the President between the Maximilian Empire ending in 1867 and the 1910 Revolution), printed on a huge folio letterhead of the President, good condition but folded and with darkening in margins and punch-holes to one side. Pedigreed to the Mark Bir collection.
