One small rip at upper left fold. Otherwise in very nice condition. 8.5 x 9". This was issued during the two years La Plata was the county seat of Churchill County. La Plata never reached a population of more than a couple of hundred. On top of that it was, like most Nevada mining camps, in a remote mountain area. La Plata was given the county seat, because the current county seat was Buckland Station. That's right a wagon station in an area with a few ranches - and, oh yes, Fort Churchill - was the first county seat. In 1867 the county seat was moved to Stillwater, a small town with a lot of ranches. The ore was surface, ran out quickly, and by 1867 there was little population left and no real mining!
