Original seal stamp for an important Dodge City railway
Description                           Estimate: $4,000+          

Original circa 1880s–1890s Dodge City wax sealer with an oval metal head that produces an impression reading, “Agent, C. R. I. & P. RY, Dodge City, Kas.,” which stands for the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway. The sealing stamp is attached to a dark wooden 4″ long handle which is spotted with a bit of old dried wax. In fine condition. The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway leased track into Dodge City. This was one of many areas that boomed with the cattle drives up from Texas to railheads in Kansas for shipments to stockyards in Chicago and beyond. Dodge City became infamous for its diversity of saloons, gambling halls, and brothels in addition to its dense population of notorious gunslingers, gamblers, outlaws, and lawmen. A rare, museum-quality relic of the archetypal Wild West city.
