Lot of 5. These are Stateler & Arrington checks issued in 1864 to people with famous Nevada last names. However, research did not show any relation to the historical figures. Best is a check to Albert Comstock (no relation to Henry). Others include: Henry Stokes (think "Stokes Castle"); AW Piper (think "Piper's Opera House"); and two for JP Hobart (think "W.S. Hobart"). Two of the checks have the red S&A cancel. All have an adhesive revenue stamp. Three are signed by Charles Bonner, two by Charles Strong, as supts. for the Gould & Curry.
