Collectible James Fargo and William Fargo American Express

James C. Fargo was the younger brother of William Fargo, co-founder of American Express and Wells Fargo Co. He became the third president of American Express after William's death in 1881. James was a co-founder along with William Fargo.

James C. Fargo (1829-1915), signs as president and William C. Fargo signs as secretary of the American Express Co. Both sign at front of this great stock with slight cancellation affecting the W. C. Fargo signature. Great vignette of the mascot dog. Excellent condition and extremely rare with both signing.
