This must be along 7th Street in Victor, as there is a hanger for a trolley wire clipped off by the damaged part of this postcard. Sadly, it got damaged either in the photographing or in the making process, but still quite nice to have... Not the sharpest view but still a link back to days long gone.
   In background left, up on Squaw Mountain a short Midland Terminal train is out with 3 ore gondola type of cars, and just in front of that train there is a smaller Head-Frame poking up, which I believe is part of the Golconda Mine, as that is the only mine I know about in that area.

This is not the best views of the Gold Coin mine, due to the print type of process behind this postcard. It did not scan well and details are lost to the dots making up the image. But, it does show yet another image that at least at one time did exist out there as a negative, with three mines visible. Also, we see some train activity on the F. & C.C. tracks at the lower left part of the view.
In the prominent place about center of view we of course see the massive brick structures of the Gold Coin mine!
In foreground, lower part right-hand side of the view, we see part of the cribbing of the Mary Cashen mine, and its dump area inside the crib-wall.
In lower right-hand corner one also see a piece of the Victor Public Sampler structure, rest is outside the view in this card.
A little less than 1/3 left from the right-hand side, about 1/3 down from the top, behind the roof part of the engine room part of the Gold Coin, the head frame of the Golconda mine is poking up among the roof tops of the houses in the background.

This view of Victor from Battle Mountain is a nice one when looking at the online sources of the non-postcard view. It holds so many goodies it is hard to describe them all.
The Gold Coin mine is seen in quite a nice look, just to the left of the center of the view.
Further up front is also seen the Ore-house of the Mary Cashen mine, with a near square head frame and part of the cribbing to hold the waste rock in place as they had not the same luxury as Gold Coin to transport waste away through a long tunnel.
At left of the orehouse is the structures of the Victor Public Sampler, located just below the M.T. spurs and sort of sandwiched in between that and the switchback spur down to the orehouse of the Strong Mine further to the left, outside this view. Piece of the tail-end of that spur is seen along the cribbing and head frame of the Mary Cashen when looking near right hand side where the Victor depot of the M.T. is seen.
Way of in the background, right of the Gold Coin but sort of just over the south part (left) part of the Gold Coin Club structure, the Golconda structures can be seen on the Internet sources when fully zoomed into the view. That mine is hard to find good images of.

This interesting view from Battle Mountain towards the Gold Coin mine in Victor, as it is getting rebuilt after the 1899 fire that destroyed the old mine and lot of the town itself, helps give the impression of what was first rebuilt and what was postponed. The Ore-house was clearly important as that is already up in this view, same is the large head frame, while the shaft house only have the first level of walls put up.
In the foreground is the distinctive Ore-house of the Mary Cashen seen, with its head frame just to the right of the orehouse. 
Victor Public Sampler is the long structure in-front of the Mary Cashen, and the railroad in the foreground is the M.T with its depot towards the right-hand side of this view.

Sadly, this image is pretty messed up by that large whitish block showing up on the glass plate negative. Add the fact it is really not that sharp either, and blurs a little on the edges, and it folds itself nicely into most other images in my collection, close but not the best of views, like most of the images I have!
* Around center of the view is the familiar look of the Gold Coin structures, looking at the north and east walls.
* Near lower left is the F. & C.C. depot, the western part of it obscured by the crib-wall of the Mary Cashen mine. The Ore-house is partly hidden under the damaged part, same with the head frame, and any other possible good things.
* The M.T. depot is seen near the lower right corner.
* Near the right-hand side, about 2/5 down from the top, is the head frame and hoist house of the Golconda mine, sadly I was not able to get a sharp scan so there is no reason to try get a closer look as it really is not much to look at, not sharp at all in a higher resolution scan.

Yet another view of the great Gold Coin Mine from further north and east on Battle Mountain. Sadly, once again the paper quality is of the type that what is dark is dark, and there is some shininess to parts, making it hard to get the image tweaked into giving away more details.
In the foreground is part of the M.T. spur to the Victor Sampler seen, with C.M. Boxcar No. 5047 standing on a dual gauge track as this spur was connected with the F. & C.C, seen on the lower level further into the image.
* The Victor Public Sampler is seen partly on the right-hand side, the foreground structures except the clearly a house with a porch in lower right corner.
* Behind the sampler is the crib-wall and ore-house of the Mary Cashen seen, but not a really useful view of this mine.
* The Gold Coin mine is about in the center of the view, in full operation as seen by the smoke from the large chimney.
* Part of the Golconda head frame and hoist house is seen in the far background at right of the upper part of the Gold Coin shaft house, behind the engine house part of the Gold Coin.
