In 1856, the independent Nataqua territory was declared in Honey Lake Valley of northwest Nevada and northeast California. The territory consisted of American settlers who saw that their valley was governed by neither territory that it bordered, and needed a way to deal with land claims. The territory lasted until 1861 and was very nearly recognized by the US government before it was absorbed by the Nevada territory. Could this 1856 three dollar gold coin have been brought to the short-lived Nataqua territory?
