U.S. Mint Reports
Primarily consisting of the Mint Director's annual report, this series contains information often found nowhere else, revealing internal workings of the Mint and copious statistical data. In addition to the annual reports, this series includes other reports as issued, for example, results of assay tests of foreign gold and silver coins. Beginning in 2010, the biennial report on coinage production cost and cost saving alternatives is included in this series.
Note: Reports are categorized by year published rather than year covered. In some cases, the annual report for a given year was not published until the following year.

Mint Director James Pollock's report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1863.
Paul Hybert summary: "The coinage is reduced for another year, and for the same reasons. A branch mint opens at Denver, Colorado Territory, but processes only bullion to date. Although the small cent is more popular than the discontinued large cent, the inclusion of nickel to give it an intrinsic value closer to one cent provides no benefit and should be discontinued."
