          Dear Mr. Gerstel,

           

          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!

          We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Petty Ledger for Dies Furnished to the Branch Mints, 1885 - 1890 and Letters Received, 1/2/1900 - 11/26/1901 in the Records of the U.S. Mint (Record Group 104) that include records relating to the provisioning of dies to other branch mints by the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia. For more information about these and other Philadelphia Mint records, please contact the National Archives at Philadelphia (RE-PA) at philadelphia.archives@nara.gov.

           

          We also located 100 record series in Record Group 104 created by the San Francisco Mint from the 1870s through the 1920s. For more information about these records, please email the National Archives at San Francisco (RW-SB) at sanbruno.archives@nara.gov.

           

          Additionally, we located 194 records series  in Record Group 104 created by the Bureau of the Mint headquarters during the same time period. For more information about these records, please email the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) at Archives2reference@nara.gov.

           

          Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RE-PA, RW-SB, and RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
