Confederate coins?[edit]

Clarification needed - were the coins from the Charlotte mint sent by Confederate authorities, and returned to them? Or were they sent by loyal Unionists, and then kept in Philadelphia? Textorus (talk) 00:03, 2 November 2011 (UTC)

We don't know who sent them. It isn't clear how many of them were destroyed in the assay, but any remainders would not have been returned but they would have placed in circulation from Philadelphia. And they would have had the standard US designs, all the engravers were in Philadelphia and Charlotte had no diemaking facilities.--Wehwalt (talk) 17:27, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
