From the early years of the Comstock Lode...
Item # 209257 VIRGINIA EVENING CHRONICLE, Virginia (City), Nevada, 1872. Virginia City is one of America's largest historic landmarks. Some say Virginia City's rich gold and silver mines financed the Civil War. Now rich in history, Virginia City and the Comstock Lode still maintain the flavor of the hifalutin mining days, when Mark Twain roamed the streets and everybody wanted a piece of the "Richest Place on Earth."
This complete 4 page newspaper is replete with both news & ads, including some news reports on the front page. Just a bit irregular at the spine, the issue is generally in very nice, clean condition and not the least bit browned. The photo below is "generic" however the issue you receive will have a similar look & will be dated 1872.
