MINT VISITOR'S RECORDS 

   Last week's excerpt from the 1863 pamphlet "Something 
   About Coins"  led us to wonder if the San Francisco mint's 
   visitors logs still exist, which would enable us to pinpoint the 
   date of author Barra's visit.  Karl Moulton writes:  "I agree 
   with the view that if the San Francisco visitor register does 
   survive, it would be in the Pacific Division of the National 
   Archives. 

   Jenny and I spent several days going through the visitor 
   registers for the Philadelphia Mint (1836-1851) and found 
   many interesting entries.  I can say with certainty that the 
   Branch Mint visitor registers are not in the Mid-Atlantic region 
   office in Philadelphia."
