Very Early Jarbidge Post Card
We grade this card good.
This Real Photo Card shows Jarbidge
Nevada at the beginning of her history. The cancel is light,
but definitely Jarbidge. The date is no
longer readable, however the picture (late summer based
on foilage and river) and description of the
town by the card-sender indicates the card is as early
as summer, 1906. The cancel is light
and indicates Feb., probably 1917 as the author dates.
The card front is a birds eve view of town
and is labeled "Birdseye View of Jarbridge, Nev."
The card is numbered 2158. The back of
the card is even more Interesting.
The sender writes in fine calligraphy that
the town is mostly tents and log homes and that he
is "at the mine stirring soup". We grade the
card good. There is moderate wear on the corners and side; there are several
holes. Canceled once-cent green stamp
is extra fine with light yellowing. A rare early Real Photo Card of Jarbidge.
TOUGH early mining RPC.
