Very rare assay sheet for the Assay Office of Leopold Kuh, located at Taylor Street, Corner of D Street. Kuh assay sheets are some of the rarer Comstock assay pieces. What makes this one even more special is that the deposit is from fellow Virginia City assayer Theall & Co. Why would an assayer be having a competitor handling his samples? This was called a "check sample." Very likely whomever Theall's original ore deposit was from (probably the Savage Mine), they wanted an outside check on his assay results. Theall was using Kuh to confirm his assaying. Four samples of crushed ore deposited April 15th, 1867. Signed at the bottom by Kuh. Folds. 10" x 7.5" State: Nevada City: Virginia City, Storey Date: HWAC# 99775
