From the ghost town of Silver City, Nevada...
Item # 209247
January 1, 1880
LYON COUNTY TIMES, Silver City, Nevada, 1880 From what I have been able to research Silver City is pretty much a ghost town today, with several old building still standing from its heyday during the mining era in the 1870's and 1880's. Located rather close to the more famous Virginia City, this newspaper began in Silver City in 1874 and relocated to nearby Dayton, Nevada, in December of 1880.
This 4 page issue is filled with Western-style ads on pgs. 1 & 4 with various news of the day, and additional ads, on pags 2 & 3. Very nice condition, never bound nor trimmed, a scarce title from the early mining district of Nevada. The photo below is "generic" however the issue you receive will have a similar look & will be dated 1880 or earlier.
