These pay stubs from 1938 and 1939 reflect that miners on the day and night shift on the Cornucopia Mine, middle Oregon, were paid $4.00 a shift. 1921  This is a hard to find mining correspondence. Mine headquarters typically did not save old correspondence and much of what had remained was purged from the files. Most folks, including companies, simply did not save this type of material.  These stubs provide first-hand historical documents of the labor types and pay in previous deceased of mining industry.  The stubs have wear; two are in pretty good shape but it looks like a mouse took a bite out of one. Uncommon.
