The Edmunds Act was part of a string of bills and laws passed by the federal government outlawing polygamy, that would reach an apex with the Edmund Tucker act that was passed in 1887. These laws led to the acceleration of polygamy raids and the incarceration of bigamists. Rare in any condition, likely unheard of in this condition. Flake/Draper 10120.
