Crawford many not be well known, but he ran the legendary mint in Carson City for a decade from 1874 through 1885, presiding over 48 million coins which had a face value of 33 million dollars. Much information about Crawford, but also about the mint itself, the coins, and the public figures that surrounded him --Genera' Grant and President Hayes, among them.
