Coin Press No. 1

Here's a quick All-Star Game (related) post.

A couple of weeks I ago I went down to the Nevada State Museum—home of the Carson Mint and Coin Press No. 1—to photograph the minting of commemorative silver medallions for the players, coaches and executives. Wasn't much to shoot—quick press conference—but it was really cool to watch the original coin press. I love Nevada history.
