EDITIONS OF STEWART'S MINT HISTORY 

   NBS Board member Pete Smith has this question for our 
   E-Sylum readers: 

   "Jesse Watson's 1926 book on "The Bureau of the Mint: Its 
   History, Activities and Organization" has an extensive 
   bibliography.  He lists the 1924 edition of Stewart's "History 
   of the First United States Mint, its People and its Operation" 
   published by the author in Camden, NJ.  He also lists a 1925 
   edition published by William J. Campbell in Philadelphia.  I can't 
   recall seeing a previous reference to a 1925 edition.  It is not in 
   Clain-Stefanelli, Davis or Sigler. 

   Can any of our astute E-Sylum readers confirm the existence of 
   the 1925 edition or explain Watson's error in listing it?"
