Subject: Colorado

Period: 1901 (dated)


Color: Printed Color

30.5 x 38 inches
77.5 x 96.5 cm

This is a scarce and locally produced map of the Leadville Mining District. It is filled with an astounding mosaic of mineral claims, perhaps more than one thousand in all, each named and numbered. The mining claims listed in the table at lower left are also in overprinted color while the smaller claims are left uncolored. The map was printed on fine banknote-style paper by the Denver Litho. Co. Compiled from Official Records and other Reliable Sources by mining investment broker Charles F. Saunders.


Condition: A+

Map and paper are fine. The large map has been miss-folded in the past so some of the folds are awkward.

Estimate: $200 - $300

Sold for: $170
