(I would not call this a stinky pun.  It’s a bright and shiny, found penny pun!  And, a nice little history lesson.  Our very first Mint opened in Philadelphia, our capitol at the time.

Hoyt is giving us all a break today, with all established clue words.  Nothing for ralis95 to do today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new, with “ebowlb” having definitely been used sometime before.  The answer letter layout was a fine eleven letter jumble.  There was nothing obvious about it.  I think yesterday’s Jumble would’ve been more clear to me if the clue/question had a comma after the word “allowed”.  It looks like it didn’t trip up many of you guys though!

Great historic, period piece cartoon today.  I’m guessing the guy on the right is David Rittenhouse, the first director of the first U.S. Mint.  He was an astronomer by profession, and apparently friends with Thomas Jefferson.  It always pays to know the right people!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Once again, I commend the Jumble Crew for coming back to numismatics! I have forwarded this to coin club members who like word games.
    Incidentally, the illustration selected by WordPress is not an actual coin, but a pattern copper quarter (Judd-12) of 1792. Not legal tender, yet still extremely valuable (one sold for $2.2 million in 2015).

    I had the opportunity to be at an old building in a Historic section of Philly…Here’s the Skinny:
    After having to WOBBLE & SHOVE many items out of the way in the MUSTY old top floor of the site {{even had to watch out for some rather unfriendly RODENTs}} I came across a great surprise… Some old papers/notes concerning
    the first U.S. Mint that was in Philadelphia, PA,
    what a terrific find!!☆

    I really received my MONEY’S WORTH$$$¿
    (Then I awoke from my dream, Drat^^^*)

    Happy and safe traveling this Summer…
