Some larger pictures of that 1868 Sierra Survey Map map can be seen on our CPRR Museum website.

Wow! The "$220,000" opening bid price being asked on is a bit over my budget. Not a surprise that there are no bids yet.

Interesting... very similar to the Western Pacific maps at the National archive, including the seal. It doesn't seem to have the commissioner's signatures.

The price is interesting as well. Historic maps have been used as an investment by some, and the seller seems to be trying to cash in on that. I suspect ebay isn't the vehicle for that market ...

That map is from the Nevada County records, NOT the CPRR records.
