Some stray marks, slightly bowed, but generally very good to excellent.

Nevada Senator William Sharon was honored with a grand dinner to celebrate his success in helping to save the Bank of California after a disastrous crash in mining stock prices brought a run on the bank.

As a souvenir, each guest received a copy of the engraved menu made of the finest Comstock silver.
