Extremely rare Carson City Mint form. United States Mint, Carson City (printed), February 17th, 1874. Received of F.D. Hetrick, Superintendent U.S. Mint Carson City, 8,892.2 ounces of deposits of silver bullion consisting of No. 172-176. Signed by George W. Bryant, melter and refiner. Printed on blue paper by H.S. Crocker & Co. 5 x 8" Spindle hole, one smudge. Reverse has pencil notations of different hardware including molds and pipes. Frank D. Hetrick was appointed superintendent in 1873. Before arriving at the Carson City Mint as an assayer, Hetrick was an Assistant Assayer and Refiner at the Colorado Mint for 6 years. During the Civil War, he served as a lieutenant in the Ninth Regiment, First Brigade of the Seventh Division. He returned home from the war sick and took a long time to recover (according to the Lafayette Monthly, Vol. 3, 1872). He was appointed superintendent to the Carson City Mint by President Grant following H.F. Rice's resignation. Rice served after Curry, and resigned amid allegations that assays were being altered and that sub-par coins were being minted.
