Very rare document for this town which was once situated in both California and Nevada (near Bodie). A three-page document made on the 15th of January, 1867 between James C. Burnett of Bridgeport, Mono County, CA and S. G. Cobb of Aurora for property in the town - "one half of that certain lot and building situate [sic] on the South Side of Pine Street" "being known as the 'Exchange Stable.'" Paid $400. Two adhesive revenue stamps are affixed. The first is a brown 50 cent Nevada stamp, perf., and the second is a 50 cent, R 58, R 5, Life Insurance stamp, perf. The text is difficult to read because it is written in light blue ink. S.G. Cobb was listed as a lumberman in Aurora in both of Kelly's Nevada Territory Directories (1862 and 1863). He is listed as owning a livery in Aurora in Polk's 1884 Nevada Gazetteer & Business Directory. Folds, rips with tape repairs, and soiling. Please inspect. Ex.
