Otto Mears, president of THE SILVERTON RAILROAD and THE RIO GRANDE SOUTHERN RAILROAD, issued 1892. Made from one ounce silver.

 

Maker:  S. Spitz, Santa Fe, New Mexico.  Excellent condition.  Does not include — unfortunately — the leather case or original card (“This pass is made of Colorado silver by native workmen.”)

Question is: did George J. Morrison have anything to do with Morrison, Colorado and the quarry just outside its town limits?

Dimensions: 1.5 inches by 2.75 inches.  Fine braided silver with a solid silver center.  Masterfully and ornately hand-produced.
