eBay Fixed Price Item # 374133850068

Offered is an original, historic, & collectible old newspaper: EUREKA DAILY LEADER, Nevada, Dec. 6, 1879  * Rare mining town title  * Wild Old West A very nice, folio-size newspaper from this small, remote town in northeastern Nevada. This old mining town is situated in the mountains at a 6,500 feet elevation in a county with just 3 towns--total county population today is just 1900 residents. In its heyday when mining was the predominant draw from the mid-1870's until the shutting down of most mines by 1891, the town had a population of 9000.

Four pages, never bound nor trim... See More
