John Hull and His Hull Mint

Coins-United States Colonial | I. R. Bama

After writing about James Longacre, I kind of wondered why I started with the third chief engraver and that led me to look at earlier engravers and mint principles. Then I wondered about who was the Hull in the Hull mint, as it was the first mint in our colonial national history. I was surprised to find that information on this subject is not especially easy to obtain without access to an academic library. And access to an academic library is forbidden to the public during this peculiar time. So left to the Hoi Polloi at this time are the few sources that that can be gleaned from the internet. This is one I would like to delve in even deeper.
