Very early Colorado mining document! A. Holter is recording the Inarto (?) Mining Claim, No. 118W on the Orvego (?) Lode. Given at Spanish Bar, January 28th, 1861. Signed by Geo. P. Boyes(?) as recorder. (The handwriting is a little difficult to read). Printed by the Rocky Mountain News Printing Company. Signed by Holter on the reverse. Eagle and Native American vignettes. Heavily tape repaired, but otherwise clean. 4.75 x 7.5" The Spanish Bar Mining District was located in Clear Creek County three miles from Idaho Springs [Corbett 1879]. This very well may be the same A. Holter who went on the Montana and established the AM Holter Hardware and lumber businesses as well as being involved in mining projects. According to biographies online, Holter travelled to Colorado during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush. He left for Montana in 1863. In The Timberman, Vol. 12, Holter recounts spending the winters of 1861 and 1862 in Central City. (Potter Collection) Date: Location: Clear Creek County, Colorado HWAC# 59135
