Black border, crème paper. U/C. Printer: Danforth, Bald. & Co., N.Y. and Phila. 6 ½ x 10.” Creases, splits and a bit of foxing as seen. Top right corner tip is missing. Paper is somewhat brittle from age. Some age discoloration but very good overall considering its age. Mine Property was originally the Sneath & Clay Mine, that in its heyday produced $180,000. R. B.
