    Is there one "Officially". There is not one listed under Ventris C. Gibson's(current Director of the U.S. Mint) leadership board.

    Not sure that an historian, if one even exists, would show up on a list of Mint leadership.

    If no one else knows, it might make sense to contact the Mint directly, and inquire.

    I don't even think there's a Chief Engraver. If there is, he's probably in computer science. I think everything is done by CAD today.

    Yes, I saw that. Is the guy an actual sculpture? Maybe he is, I don't know.

    This sentence answers my question:

    Menna has also done the Digital concept sculpture for the Statue of Unity. Digital= CAD

    They could use one if they don't already have one.

    Probably an unofficial designation... A long term employee that is the 'go to' individual when such information is needed. Happens that way in a lot of organizations. Cheers, RickO
