According to Breen, production was stopped so that personnel could devote their full time work to making quarters.

Is it because Mint Director F.J.H. Engelken halted production on November 24, 1916 in order to refocus the Mint's efforts on the manufacture of Quarters?

They were released in November because coinage of the dimes were stopped so the Mint could devote full time to Quarters from that year.

 

Can I get a pedigree on the sample? laugh.gif

Thank you Dena for the nice sample slab and shield boxes. It is an Austrian 2002 1 Euro, nice looking coin.

Good grief the package was wrapped tight! Thanks again! laugh.gif
