Wells Fargo & Co.'s Express $300 Standing Reward Poster, 1912 Wells Fargo & Co.'s Express $300 Standing Reward Poster, 1912 Wells Fargo & Co.'s Express $300 Standing Reward Poster, 1912 Wells Fargo & Co.'s Express $300 Standing Reward Poster, 1912






Wells Fargo & Co. Express
$300 Standing Reward Poster
Issued December 1, 1912.



As early as March 1, 1877, the company offered a "Standing Reward" of $300 for the conviction of each highway robber.

Three hundred dollars in 1877 were worth about $6,000 in today's currency.

Standing Rewards drastically reduced the need to print Reward Posters for each individual highwaymen.

This poster was issued in this ORIGINAL FRAME and WOOD BACKING! It was displayed in an office for six years, and then discarded when the company was consolidated into the American Railway Express. How and why it survived is still a mystery.

The frame measures 14-1/4" x 18-1/4". The Foxing (stains) in the right and lower-right margins attest to its age.

This IS the poster that is pictured in “Company Property . . .” at top left, on page 107. A SIGNED COPY of this book will be INCLUDED with your purchase.

This part of Western History is rapidly vanishing, and this is the LAST ONE of these that you will see. Enjoy this beautiful poster in your collection for years to come!

$750.
