Nevada has a great and storied past in regard to newspapers. They would come and go like the boom towns and rushes that created them. Here are four different billheads from four different Nevada newspapers, that reside in my collection. All are signed by the various editors and owners of said newspapers, and they have all been spindled in a nasty fashion.
If you love, or want to begin to love Western Americana, and all things western, I direct your attention to the upcoming "Western Americana Bonanza," auction which is being run by Holabird-Kagin Americana, of Reno, Nevada, on October 29-30, 2010.
From the looks of their over 400 page catalog for this auction, this is going to be one of those incredible Western Americana sales that people talk about for years afterward. This show features the Mueller-Schmidtmann Collections. Anyone who knows anything about Western Americana and Western Ephemera, knows about these two guys and their legendary collections. The lots being presented for sale are incredible with many of those "one of a kind" items that we hear about so much, but see so infrequently.
