Page 181 of the 1794 Philadelphia City Directory shows the United States Mint at 29 North Seventh Street.


It looked like this:




I think that's George Washington's car.

My daughter is a historical researcher who has been studying female inmates at San Quentin Prison in California in the 19th Century.

She came across this article, from the San Francisco Examiner on September 30, 1881, about a woman who had been arrested for trying to pass counterfeit gold eagles.

She was later pardoned by President Chester Alan Arthur.

My daughter showed me the article and said she loved the slang used for trying to pass counterfeits - "shoving the queer".
