22.5 x 30.5", "Miners W.F.M. 73 Quartz, Cal. Union". Gilt (gold) lettering on black background, dead mint and beautiful. Date and age unknown. The Western Federation of Miners was the most powerful miners union active after 1900. The union was well known for its tremendous level of violence and murder. It centered on the states mining regions in the Rockies, but spread over all US mining regions from California to Michigan. We could find no records of any Quartz, California chapters of the WFM. But, unfortunately, the Proceedings of the WFM do not list the chapters by place or number, but do mention the locales, but Quartz does not show up in the massive 200+pp 1904 volume.
