RIO GRANDE SOUTHERN RAILROAD – SILVERTON RAILROAD, 1892
PASS NO. 365, issued to GEORGE J. MORRISON.
Otto Mears facsimile signature — impressed in silver — as president of these two Colorado railroad companies.
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.
