    Highlight: The engraver by no means stands to the artist in the relation of an interpreter, for the least cultivated observer understands the picture as well before as after it has passed through the hands of the engraver. Therefore it needs no interpreter. This subordination of the engravereaders of Harper's Magazine who would not prefer the orig- inals of the illustrations in that periodical to the “proofs’ of wood-cuts made after them. Now since it is impossible to sup- ply the required number of illustrations in their original form, the engraver comes in to meet the deficiency. His work is the most convenient, and, if he is skillful, the best means of accomplishing the de- sired result.

    Highlight: Mint's chief engraver Christian Gobrecht. The fact that Gobrecht's name appears prominently on the base of the first seated liberty coin, the "Gobrecht Dollar" is cited as proof positive of his authorship of this landmark design. This article will show that the design was the vision of mint director Robert M. Patterson and that Christian Gobrecht did little more than execute the detailed design instructions he was given, and that the final design that we all know was largely determined by President Andrew Jackson. Historical Background Robert Patterson's father was the 4th director of the U.S. Mint and was appointed by Thomas Jefferson in 1806 and served in that position until 1824. On August 24 1814, the British forces burned the U.S. Treasury and White House. Andrew Jackson defeated the

It is not common knowledge among Cuban numismatic collectors that Charles Barber, Chief Engraver for the U.S.A. Philadelphia Mint, was the engraver of the first Cuban coinage in 1915. This timely article should represent a tribute to Charles Barber on the Centennial of Cuban coinage.

    ROBERT M. PATTERSON AND THE SEATED LIBERTY DESIGN

    12/15/2013

    Highlight: Mint's chief engraver Christian Gobrecht. The fact that Gobrecht's name appears prominently on the base of the first seated liberty coin, the "Gobrecht Dollar" is cited as proof positive of his authorship of this landmark design.

    This article will show that the design was the vision of mint director Robert M. Patterson and that Christian Gobrecht did little more than execute the detailed design instructions he was given, and that the final design that we all know was largely determined by President Andrew Jackson.

    Historical Background

    Robert Patterson's father was the 4th director of the U.S. Mint and was appointed by Thomas Jefferson in 1806 and served in that position until 1824. On August 24 1814, the British forces burned the U.S. Treasury and White House.

A Family of Engravers Charles Edward Barber is often por- trayed as an egotistical hothead who was determined to sabotage coinage designs sub- mitted by outside artists. Although there is probably some truth in this characterization. Barber should also be remembered as a skilled engraver and gifted artist. His 48-year tenure at the U.S. Mint was marked by a prolific outpouring of coinage and medal designs. Born in London November 16, 1846, Charles was the son of William and Anna Barber and came from a long line of distinguished engravers. William Barber was a die maker for the prestigious firm of De La Rue and

The coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint but In nearly a year's time no one came forth with the correct answer. Many comments were wild guesses. One stated correctly the artist must be German as the lower case "v" must have been for "von," that the artist must be German. Others speculated it was a friend of Seung-Man Rhee whose portrait is shown on the coin. The answer is Engelhardus von Hebel. And what do we know of this artist?
