Interesting Comstock Document. But the prize here is the signature of Mackay. He almost always signs his name J. W. Mackay. We rarely have seen his full name as a signature. The Con California & Virginia is selling approximately 40 blocks of land to the Pacific Mill. The Consolidated Virginia and the California Mines together took out over $125,000,000 in ore. [Couch & Carpenter] But in 1887 the ore was depleted and the mines were merged. This is the sale of the land of the Pacific Mill & Mining Company (which must have owned the two original mines) and sold to the new Con California and Virginia. Price $10,000. Mackey signature is on the indenture as the president of the Pacific Mill & Mining Company. All except a certain house (Mackay Mansion???), blacksmith shop, retort, etc. Includes seal of Notary Holland Smith. Heavily folded, but easy to read and the paper is in very good condition. Great original Comstock piece! Date: 1887 Location: Virginia City, Nevada HWAC# 60658
