Item # 130049
January 1, 1880
DESERET NEWS, Salt Lake City, Utah Territory, 1880 Uncommon title from this Mormon city. The issue shown is representative of the look and condition of what you will receive. While actual dates vary, the issue will be dated in 1880 and will have the look/condition similar to what is shown in the image. Due to the use of rag paper, the issue is in very good condition. Nice to have from more than a dozen years before Utah would become a state.
