March 07, 1901

THE FARMINGTON HUSTLER, New Mexico, March 7, 1901 

* Rare territorial issue
* San Juan County

A quite scarce title, in fact the first we have discovered. This lasted but two years before merging with the Times to become the "Farmington Times-Hustler". "Union List Of Serials" notes that no institution in the country has any issues from this year. 
Farmington is in the northwest corner of New Mexico, just east of the famous Shiprock geological landmark. And a territorial issue also as New Mexico did not become a state until 1912.
Typical news and ads of the day, never bound nor trimmed, a few discrete archival mends inside, uncommonly nice condition.
