|[back] PRESSING AND CUTTING ROOM United States Mint, Philadelphia. Within the walls of this room, rolling machines were at work turning the metal to the proper degree of thickness, which each particular denomination of coin required. When the strip was of the proper thickness, they were cut to the proper diameter for coining at a rate of 200 to 250 planchets per minute.
