San Francisco U.S. Mint out of service after the 1906 earthquake. : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Would anyone have the information about how long the San Francisco Mint was of service after the 1906 earthquake? Also what date did the Mint became operational again? Thanking you all in advance.

After the earthquake of 1906, which closed the San Franciso Mint, the Mint was moved to New York.

There are/were 3 mints in SF. The first was on Montgomery Street and is now a museum. The Mint was moved to somwhere on Mission Street for a while, and then to its present location above Market, where I believe it is still in operation.
