TMTA - Mustache

This weeks Challenge at TMTA was beards or mustache... it took me awhile to find one... This is from the magazine "Wild West" April 2008!  this is circa 1800s Leadville, CO.  The article mentions the monthly salaries of law enforcement... city marshal was paid $180 per month.  The captain, $125 and seargent $100.  I used Mod-podge to apply the magazine clipping to the card.
