Franklin Peale[edit]

Franklin Peale

  • ... that Chief Coiner of the United States Mint at Philadelphia Franklin Peale (pictured) spent two years studying his trade in Europe?
  • ALT1:... that Chief Coiner of the United States Mint at Philadelphia Franklin Peale (pictured) went into business after his predecessor remained active without pay?
  • Reviewed: Not needed, not a self nom

  • Symbol confirmed.svg Yeah, that is one heck of a new article. Wow. Teemu08 (talk) 01:44, 7 November 2013 (UTC)
  • I prefer ALT2, but the article as currently written doesn't support it, it states that "Prior to this time, all coin dies had to be made individually, by hand" but it really needs to say "all coin dies in the United States", but I can't fix it myself because it's an offline source, maybe the article's author could rectify that?

  • The next sentence in the article qualifies "all coin dies" as meaning those in the Philadelphia Mint, but it would be useful if Wehwalt can clarify whether it means that or actually all of the United States. Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 14:25, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Sorry about that. Yes, I meant to say in the United States (the Philadelphia Mint, until I think about 1990, made all the dies for all the mints in the US). So ALT2 should be fine now. Thanks for the kind words.--Wehwalt (talk) 19:14, 10 November 2013 (UTC)
  • Symbol confirmed.svg Yes, fine with ALT2. I didn't realise anyone was waiting for me! Ritchie333 (talk) (cont) 18:21, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
