From Tombstone in 1880...

Item # 698454

April 08, 1880

THE WEEKLY NUGGET, Tombstone, Pima County, Arizona, April 8, 1880  This may well be the consummate Old West town, much romanticized in movies and television shows, perhaps most famous for the gunfight at the OK Corral involving Wyatt Earp and the Clanton gang.
This rare issue was printed less than two years before this famous gunfight and is replete with advertisements with a distinctively Western theme. It has all ads on the front page with many more on the inside pages as well, for saloons, hotels, stage coach lines, assay offices, and any other type of business required of a booming mining town.
This issue is complete in 4 pages & is in very nice, clean condition. Has an archival mend to the central fold of the inside pages but causing no loss of readability, a few minor margin tears. A news agent's stamp in the masthead, and a handwritten name at the top. A rare opportunity for this famous title from this famous Old West town.

Item from Catalog 342 (released for May, 2024)
