Availability of mintmark punches
Has an old mintmark punch(regardless of mint location) ever been available? Such as a master punch for punching the dies?
I have never seen one and understand that they may have been destroyed to prevent misuse. Just wondered what they looked like and if they were used by hand or machine and when did that change, if at all. I'm sure their are books available, which would explain their useage the best?
