SHIPPING & HANDLING: Shipping is subject to a minimum charge of $19.00. Shipping and handling cannot be estimated prior to invoicing as it is based on the size and weight of your purchase. Additional shipping and handling costs, if required, will be re-invoiced for the balance due. Items are not shipped until the invoice is completely paid. Many buyers purchase a number of lots.

Four legal sized documents showing shipments, ores on hand, value of equipment, assay results from January 1, 1883 to January of 1884. Melrose could refer to several places in California. Most likely to Cherokee, Nevada County. The gold rush reached here in 1850 and the boom years were between 1855 and 1866. Assays include Car #725 with 240 bars weighing 23,314 pounds. Value $334.72 in silver and lead. Ores on hand included 103 ounces of gold, 13,327 ounces of silver and 624,327 pounds of lead. On hand they had crucibles, scales, buggy, boiler, lumber, shingles, lantern, etc. Although these are scattered reports, they are very interesting. (Potter Collection)
