Charlotte Mint Working Volume from Newman Collection Digitized
A unique document originating from the early days of the Charlotte Mint has been added to the Newman Portal. Covering 1838-1841, this volume consists of published material governing Mint operation (especially congressional reports), in addition to numerous notes and annotations likely made by the Superintendent of the Charlotte Mint. John Wheeler, the original Superintendent, was replaced by Burgess Gaither in August 1841, and it is possible that this volume is exclusively the work of Wheeler. In any case, the volume appears to be the result of a thorough investigation to understand the legislative directives related to the operation of a branch Mint.
