Wow! The place has been revamped.  I haven't been there since my early school days (5th grade) as part of a class trip to Philly.
A gallery of my coins can been seen at FORVM Ancient Coins

If I remember correctly, this press is now in the Carson City Mint and Mining museum. It was last used in Carson city to strike medals and proofs.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
