Cobalt/Gowganda Area -ex Cartright Collection Specimens

Anson Cartwright was a young recently graduated mining engineer back in 1903 when he just happened to become one of Willet G. Miller's assistants at Cobalt during the discovery days in 1903 1904 or so. I was happy to have to opportunity to purchase his Cobalt collection from his son. This is a modest group of specimens, put together by an engineer, NOT a connoisseur of fine specimens. These are interesting pieces that he picked up during his time in Cobalt, so long ago just after it was discovered.
