View of San Francisco fires burning after the earthquake of 1906 outside the San Francisco Mint. The Mint was the only building that housed a financial institution still standing after the two calamities that year.

I have in my collection a Registered Mail Book from Carson City, Nevada that dates to 1912 - 1913. One of the signers is the first woman to head a Federal Reserve Facility, Annie Hudnell Martin who was appointed by President Warren G. Harding to head the federal reserve office (Federal assayer's office and formerly the US Mint) in Carson City, Nevada.






(1857 - 1928)

The first woman to be head of a United States Treasury Department Facility.
Appointed Assayer in charge of the US Assay office at Carson City (Carson City Mint)
by President Warren G. Harding she took office Aug. 6, 1921.

Chief Clerk of the Carson City Mint, 1913

Long time Carson City School Teacher, 1877 - 1892

Owner and editor of the Carson City Daily Morning News, 1892 - 1895


Pictured is a photo of her along with an example of one of her signatures from the Registered Mail Book. She usually signed for the mint.
"Tis a lesson you should heed:
Try, try, try again.
If at first you don't succeed,
Try, try, try again."

Thank you for your contribution and welcome to CCF.

It is also little known that the Treasurer of the United States has been a woman since 1949. Since 1977 the post has been filled by a minority woman.

Jean-Antoine Houdon's monumental sculpture stands in the middle in the Capitol of the State of Virginia in Richmond. Houdon's work was the basis for the portrait of Washington on the quarter.

It had to have damaged the dies too due to the uneven pressure.
