PATTERSON LETTERS YIELD INFORMATION ON ENGRAVER GOBRECHT

In the August 2007 issue of The E-Gobrecht (The Electronic Newsletter
of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club) Len Augsburger writes: "During
a recent research trip to the American Philosophical Society in
Philadelphia, my research partner, Joel Orosz, had the excellent
idea to call for the Robert M. Patterson personal papers. Three
letters from Samuel Moore to Robert M. Patterson dated June, 1835
were located. At this time Moore was the outgoing director of the
mint; Patterson assumed the Mint directorship in July, 1835.

Patterson’s father had also been the Mint director, serving from
1806 to 1824. Tying the family knot even further, the incoming
director Robert M. Patterson was the brother-in-law of the outgoing
director Moore.  The first letter is dated June 16, 1835 and deals
with the issue of hiring Christian Gobrecht as an engraver."

[Congratulations to Len and Joel on the fruits of their research.
Len's 1 1/2 page article is titled 'The Samuel Moore Letters: Part 1
- The Hiring of Christian Gobrecht'.  We'll look forward to the
subsequent parts.
