Len Augsburger submitted the following note about a numismatic research resource useful for those interested in the Philadelphia mint. -EditorI visited the Historical Society of Pennsylvania recently and located a resource which, while not related directly to what I was doing, may be quite helpful for others. It is the Philadelphia Record Photograph Morgue, which is literally the actual photographs used to produce this newspaper in the 1930s and 1940s. There were about seventy-five images related to Mint activities, including war nickels, assay commissions, launch of the Roosevelt dime, etc. Anyone researching the Mint for this period can likely find some dynamite visual material here!
