Inquiry ATS if anybody has the ledger receipt(s) for the 1933 INDIAN HEAD EAGLES from the Philly Mint  -- not Double Eagles !! -- that legitimized 4 or 5 of the coins which makes all 35-40 legal to own (since they can't tell which ones are the Original 5).

What do you mean by "ledger receipts?"

PS: All available US Mint records show that no 1933 DE were missing, ergo none could have been stolen. The Court refused to allow me to make that simple observation, which would have likely raised questions with the jury about the Govt's claim of theft. I.e., If nothing is missing can something be stolen?

Those Cashier ledgers that you have showed for various coins, mostly DEs....was wondering if there is one for the 1933 $10 Indian Head Eagles.

I think I have seen it but can't rememeber where.

It would be the paper that shows that a cashier (the Mint) gave out a $10 Eagle.

These are details of the two pages you're looking for.

3rd wide column from left, near top:

Feb 28, 1933 -- Eagles Prior [years] 1,820. Mar 1, 1933 -- 1,740. Reduced by pay out = $80.

Feb 28, 1933 -- Eagles 1933 [date] 1,420. Mar 1, 1933 -- 1,390. Reduced by pay out = $30.

Great, I will study and if no objection post ATS as we segued into the 4 $10 Eagles legitimizing all the Eagles out there since they can't ID them individually....NOT the case with Elite Collection's Farouk 1933 DE.

Please include the copyright notice with the table.

I prepared the table from original data and obtained the Cashier's Daily Settlement sheets among them.

Understood, no problem.

I take it the 4 coins in blue "Sold By Treasurer" is the X marks the spot. (thumbsu

And the 1 sold by the Philadelphia Cashier...both were officials authorized to distribute the coins. The Treasurer's Office had 100 coins and openly offered them for purchase - just as with previous coins.

Somewhere there might be a list of purchasers as was kept for other years, but I have not found it.
