late 19th century – Colorado - Gold & Silver Mining - ASSAYER’S CARD



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

Best described here by our photo illustrations, this 2 3/8 x 4 inch card remains in excellent original condition with no bends, stains, or creases and while not a big deal, is worthy of interest as it touts B. M. Newcomb’s ASSAY OFFICE – Breckenridge, Colorado offering gold and silver specimen assay prices as well as mine examination. A New Englander by birth. though Bethuel Merritt Newcomb lost his father at but four years of age accredited and teaching winter term in coastal New Gloucester, Maine at age nineteen. Though he would later have management positions in local
grocer, coal and grain dealer business, early in 1878 the ambitious Newcomb removed to Colorado, took a course in assaying and opened a public assay office. He later became a moving force in Colorado mining as he held superintendent of operation and development positions in mining operations near Rosita, Silver Cliff and Breckenridge, Colorado. In 1884 Newcomb was operating a mine in Sonora, Mexico. and in 1887 was proprietor of B. & M. Newcomb’s Assay office. A lot to say about the advertising card of a New Englander come Colorado gold and silver mine operator. Buy with confidence!
