    Machin's Mills Mint Historic Marker

    I was going through some of my folders and came across this photo of my son when he camped out at Orange Lake NY, near the mint and had his photo taken next to the Historical Marker.

    The site is on Private Property, but from literature I have read that a visit in 1989 showed that all remained of the mill's foundation was one fieldstone wall approximately 15 feet in length. There was rubble of stone on the other side of the small stream where the mill was located.

    It is nice to know that at least a historical marker is there to mark the site of a piece of our early American History.

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Well I'll be, I never knew there was a mint in NY. Glad they have a marker. We have lots of historical markers around here, I'm ashamed to say I haven't stopped to read them all, I think I should make a point of it. Well if I can get the Hubby to slow down or stop long enough.

    You son is a handsome young man Don!
