Two Memorandums of Silver Bullion deposited at the Carson City Mint in 1891 by CH Peters for the Washoe Mill. One bar is 440 ounces, .944 fineness silver. The other is an incredibly rich bar, 197.5 ounces, .999 fineness. Both signed by Elrod for the superintendent. Folds, some toning, and staple holes. 6 x 11.5" According to Ansari, the Washoe Mill, also known as the Pioneer Mill, was located in Silver City and is believed to be the first steam mill to operate in the Comstock beginning in 1860. It was built by Almarin B. Paul. The Devils Gate Mill was also originally known as the Washoe Mill, but since the CC Mint memorandums are later (1890s), it is likely the former.
