Richard Nancy Oliver & Richard Kelly forwarded this release about their newest book. Congratulations! -EditorIntroducing a brand new numismatic work, full of information never before published! This book contains 16 intimate biographies of the memorable men who were in charge of the 1st and 2nd San Francisco Mints. Contained in this work are the likenesses of all but one of these gentlemen (a collection of which you will find nowhere else). The job of mint superintendent was an awesome responsibility, which you will discover as you read through the pages of this book. Also revealed are many of the ups and downs they faced during their tenure as superintendent. In addition, included in their biographies, are some interesting revelations concerning their personal and social lives.
The legacies for many of these men have been
lost to time, but after considerable digging, enough information has been
unearthed to fill two full pages on each of them. You will find many of
their stories quite fascinating, humorous, and sometimes tongue-in-cheek.
