While the card has a bad curve to it making it a little bit hard to scan as it will not lay flat, with the also issue of a somewhat faded look, I think I've been able to enhance it a little so one gets to see some of the upper details of the tower like structure of the Victor Sampler, here most likely known as the Rio Grande Sampler. View is from an undated view of lots of people gathering around a F. & C.C. passenger train, the roof of the depot can be seen along bottom left side of this view.
View is after the 1899 City fire as the shape of the Depot roof is from the second depot structure, but I see no signs to the Mary Cashen Mine crib-wall holding in their dumps, often seen in many Victor views so it can't be that far after the fire, maybe 1900 or possible a year or two later into the century, hard to tell for sure. 
The Mine seen in the background right, with its Head Frame towards the photographer, on the dump with a hoist house seen behind the headframe, is one that puzzles me as I can't fully make out if it is on the W.C. Dillon or on the Strong claims. It seems to be a small operation, with a hoist house behind it, seen in many views of this area, and I have started to think it is a smaller shaft of the Dillon mine, but might very well be a totally different mine at all.Victor Sampler, South Walls; Cropped From a Scene at the Victor F. & C.C.

          General notes:
          This is a difficult Sampler to keep track of, as I seen it with several names, from Victor Public Sampler on some early Victor Views to just Victor Sampler in some pieces of text to also seen as Rio Grande Sampler in both tidbits of text and in advertisement from back in the days. With a Rio Grande Sampler, up in Cripple Creek town as well it makes it all extra confusing, as that as well had a different name beforeā€¦
          graphic for visual presentation of text I also think it might have been know under the name Victor Ore Sampling Company at one time.
