Great advertising broadsheet for a Western newspaper...
Item # 604027
January 1, 1875

A single sheet, reverse has type from a previous issue, very wide margins, measures 10 by 14 3/4 inches, an archival mend to the reverse. Very nice condition and a great display item from the Old West with a very Old West "look".
