Question regarding the San Francisco Mint
Let me just start off stating I know this forum is probably not the right place to ask , but it's a related topic ..
So my question is , does anyone know anything about the history of the San Francisco Mint and the furnishings made for it?
Now it seems silly why I'd ask here but I've looked everywhere for the particular company that was hired to make the furniture there sometime in the late 1800s. John Luchsinger and son. Then joined into group with w.j Heney & co. I've yet to find any history regarding this .
I wanted to ask here because I've seen that even coins are particularly of more value from this mint compared to the ones still operating . And the fact it's a topic relating to it.
Reason I'm looking is because I have recently obtained items believed to be from the mint. It's stamped W.J. Heney & co. Also signed by D. Swett of Santa Cruz.
It's a bedframe and vanity set. Although it does seem strange that it would have come from the mint however no other info has been found yet. Any info or advice would be appreciated 👍
