The E-Sylum:  Volume 9, Number 7, February 12, 2006, Article 22

FEATURED WEB PAGE: THE MINT AT NEW ORLEANS

This week's featured web page contains the text of a rare 1845
pamphlet by J. L. Riddell, M.D., titled "The Mint at New Orleans
with an account of the process of Coinage".  The pamphlet was
uncovered by Eric Newman and published in The Numismatist in 1968.

"... it is worthy of remark that the average fineness of the
gold coins issued is a trifle better than the mean standard
contemplated by law - the average value of a New Orleans eagle
being about three-fourths of a cent greater than similar coins
from the Mints of Charlotte, Dahlonega or Philadelphia."
