David Finkelstein is this week's only contributor to the JR Newsletter:
A clarification is required regarding my most recent article in the JRJ titled “How The Mint Act of 1792 Prevented The Deposit of Bullion & The Striking Of Silver & Gold Coins”. My article focused on the circulating or business strike coinage that resulted from bullion deposits made with the Treasurer of the Mint. The pattern silver coinage dated 1792 that was struck under the umbrellas and/or watching eyes of President George Washington and Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson is outside the scope of my article.
