Dr. Jesse Kraft is Assistant Curator of American Numismatics
at the American Numismatic Society.
Someone recently reached out to the ANS with these printing blocks (thinking they were coining dies). I have no idea where they were used. The Continental dollar resembles a Dickeson copy more than a genuine piece, and the half cent is badly corroded, but the overlapping coins are distinctive enough that someone may recognize them. Any help would be appreciated.
Check your libraries, folks! Do these images look familiar? What book(s) were they used to print?
