Seneca Mill Press LLC produced this masterful 4-DVD set of U.S. Mint Assay Commission records from 1800 through 1943. Annual Assay Commission – United States Mint 1800-1943 edited by Roger W. Burdette includes nearly 2,000 high resolution images of original Commission meeting minutes in convenient PDF format.

Astute collectors know the Assay Commission records are a gold mine of information about rare and mysterious coin issues. Yet, only a few privileged researchers have ever examined even small portions of these hand-written volumes.

This is the first and only published edition of these invaluable historic resources.

This 4-DVD set also includes original mint journals of:

  • all silver and gold assay coins from 1818-1840,
  • the Director’s Annual Reports from 1796 to 1827,
  • Mint auditor’s reports to Congress from 1796 to 1820, and
  • Selected Mint documents from 1786 to 1795.
Assay Commission minutes from 1840-1943 are in separate files for convenient copying to any personal computer. Additionally, all files are organized by coin date, rather then the date of the Commission meeting.

Prepared by numismatic research specialist Roger W. Burdette, this definitive collection was compiled and edited over a period of more than three years. Original documents from the National Archives in College Park, MD and Philadelphia, PA, and the Library of Congress were photographed and adapted for publication. With few exceptions, images are of manuscript and typescript meeting minutes. Although not directly searchable, these image files are easy to use and print for personal use.
