JAMES CRAWFORD: MASTER OF THE MINT AT CARSON CITY
Product Image Packed with more information about an officer in the Bureau of the Mint system than any other reference, this 650-page book, entitled James Crawford: Master of the Mint at Carson City – A Short Full Life, traces this historic figure from his birth in Kentucky to his rise to fame and authority at Nevada’s venerated coin factory in Carson City. While a small minority of coin collectors are familiar with the name James Crawford, this great man’s legacy has unfortunately been obscured in the passing pages of time. Until now, that is. For, author Rusty Goe, employing the tedious tenacity of a skilled researcher, has reconstructed James Crawford’s life, primarily through excerpts from hundreds of pages of newspapers spanning the second half of the nineteenth century. From stories of California’s Gold Rush to a probing chronicle of Nevada’s Comstock Lode, readers will be transported back in time to one of the most colorful eras in American history.

Even readers that are unfamiliar with James Crawford, or the mint at which he served, will enjoy the experience of learning about how some of the most famous coins in history were produced; and about how political chicanery affected
