U.S. Mint Reports
Primarily consisting of the Mint Director's annual report, this series contains information often found nowhere else, revealing internal workings of the Mint and copious statistical data. In addition to the annual reports, this series includes other reports as issued, for example, results of assay tests of foreign gold and silver coins. Beginning in 2010, the biennial report on coinage production cost and cost saving alternatives is included in this series.
Note: Reports are categorized by year published rather than year covered. In some cases, the annual report for a given year was not published until the following year.

Paul Hybert summary for no. 140: "A report from mint director Elias Boudinot to President Adams, who relayed it to Congress. The number of each denomination minted in 1798 is given; the value of the 1798 coins nearly double the value in any preceding year. The unprotected state of the mint should be reconsidered in light of the scheme, detected last summer, for robbing the mint."
