I am doing some research on Samuel Moore which in turn has led me to seek out more information on Adam Eckfeldt. Since they worked together I am doubting that they ever communicated with each other via letter, but I would be interested in finding papers/correspondence of Moore and Eckfeldt, separately.
I have been to the National Archives in Pennsylvania but am not sure that what I am looking for is there. I plan to look at UPENN and the Bucks County Historical society for Moore's papers but don't know where to begin with Eckfeldt. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
Well, a great starting point for Adam Eckfeldt is Pete Smith's book, American Numismatic Biographies
. A copy of an updated draft is available on the NBS web site at www.coinbooks.org/resources/
. There is an entry on Samuel Moore as well.
