QUERY: SAN FRANCISCO ASSAY OFFICE DEPOSIT INFORMATION SOUGHT

Dave Ginsburg writes: "In reviewing the Mint Annual Reports
from the 1820s to 1861, I've noticed that while they contain
deposit and mintage information for the five US mints and the
New York Assay Office, there isn't any information regarding
the activities of the Assay Office in San Francisco, which
operated from 1851 to 1853.  However, Don Kagin, in his Private
Gold Coins and Patterns of the United States, states that the
Assay Office made monthly reports to the Secretary of the
Treasury and his book contains an illustration of a page of
a report from the National Archives.

"Does anyone know if any deposit or mintage information from
the Assay Office in San Francisco has been published?"
