Do William H. Key dies still exist?
I was reading a biography of William H. Key in the dual efforts to find out where their family emigrated from and his middle name. While I haven't discovered these, I did discovery that William Warner acquired many of Key's dies and created restrikes. Are Key's dies known to still exist?
The following is from D. Wayne Johnson's blog:
Philadelphia Engravers Among America’s Unpublished ‘School of Art’
Philadelphia medalist William Warner acquired many of Key’s dies produced privately (no Mint dies) and struck these on his own. Key was one of the most productive American engravers (and possibly some unsigned dies of the U.S. Mint and of Warner were his creations).
