Description [back] The Adjusting Room U.S. Mint, Philadelphia. In this scene, circa 1903, nearly sixty women, seated at tables in long rows, each before a fine balance, weigh and adjust blanks and coins. If a coin was found slightly heavy, it was filed a little from the edge until they were made the proper weight. Others found too light, or too heavy for filing, were returned to be melted.
