The Town of Tombstone in Arizona was founded in 1877 by a prospector named Ed Schieffelin. Ed was staying at Camp Huachuca as part of a scouting expedition against the Apache Indians. During his time there he would venture out into the wilderness "looking for rocks", all the while ignoring the warnings he received from the soldiers at the camp. They would tell him, "Ed, the only stone you will find out there will be your tombstone". Well, Ed did find his stone. And it was Silver. So, remembering the words of warning from the soldiers, he named his first mine The Tombstone.
The first four years of activity the mines produced about $25,000,000 (approximately $633 million today). During these years famed killings took place in the Tombstone District such as the Gunfight at the OK Corral with Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid and others. Other mystery killings include miners being found dead with rock drill holes in their chest.
The history and folklore continues today with these Silver Nugget Bars, crafted to be unique and each one varies from the other. Slightly different shapes, features, and personality. MADE IN THE USA.
Each Bar is Solid .999 Fine Silver and comes included with a certificate of authenticity from the Scottsdale Mint along with their own bag.
