ML00353 - Gold
16 to 1 Mine, Alleghany District, Sierra County, California, USA
thumbnail - 2.0 x 1.4 x 0.5 cm
$ 375.00 SOLD

From the Al & Sue Liebetrau collection. You will notice that that the old Liebetrau label lists this as hailing from the 16 to 1 Mine in Liberty, Washington. However, there is no 16 to 1 Mine in Washington, and as this piece has all the attributes of Californian gold, I have updated the locality.
