Neville.  Check is issued on the Free Coinage Company's account at the First National Bank, Cripple Creek, Colorado.

Sam Strong was a friend of W. S. Stratton who also was successful with locating producing gold mines in the Cripple Creek Gold Mining District.  Strong owned the Free Coinage Mine with his friend, Sam Altman, the founder of the Town of Altman in the Cripple Creek District.  Strong also owned the Strong Mine at the edge of Victor, Colorado.  Sam Strong, a gambler and rather boisterous man, found himself embroiled in a fight with the owner of the Newport Saloon, J. Grant Crumley, in the City of Cripple Creek on the night of August 22, 1901.  Strong became threatening over a small debt and Crumley responded by unloading his shotgun into Strong.  Sam Strong died instantly.

This check was issued to Stephen Blair, a Colorado Springs carpenter and also a friend of W. S. Stratton.  Blair followed Stratton up to the newly formed Cripple Creek Gold Mining District in 1891 and located the Buena Vista claim near Bull Cliffs.  This property became part of the highly productive Isabella Gold Mining Company.  Blair signed this check on the back.

John B. Neville countersigned this check.  Neville was Sam Strong's father-in-law.  After Strong married Regina J. Neville, her father, John, became involved with many of Sam Strong's mining concerns in the Cripple Creek Gold District.
