The receipt has a total of $384.91 and $1.10 in fees. The Condition is very good with some slight creases. E. Ruhling was an assayer and banker in San Francisco, CA & Virginia City, Hold Hill and Hamilton, Nevada. Ruhling was born in Hamburg, Germany and began to establish himself in San Francisco around 1858. By 1861, Ruhling was working and residing in Nevada. His business partner in 1862 was H.V.S. McCullough in the firm of Ed Ruhling & Co Bankers and Assayers in Virginia, Nevada Territory. In 1869, Ruhling operated an assay office at the new silver mining camp of Hamilton in eastern Nevada. Ruhling’s business was bought out by McCullough in March, 1871.
