Lot of 3 different years. All are issued to W.R. Scott (or his wife), president of Southern Pacific Lines. Included: 1919, 1925, and 1926. Signed by three different vice presidents. Generally very good condition. The Nevada Northern Railway operated from 1905-1983. It ran from Ely, Nevada to connect with the Southern Pacific Railroad at Cobre. Mark Requa (son to Comstock figure Isaac Requa) owned the important copper mining properties in the area around Ely and realized he needed a way to get his ore to the national rail network. Construction started in Cobre and worked south. Requa drove the final spike (made of Nevada copper) on Sept. 29, 1906. (Potter Collection) Date: 1919-1926 Location: Ely, Nevada HWAC# 60351
