Moffet was at 121 Pine St. 1982-37 and it was from this address that he struck his own tokens, as well as those of Samuel Maycock and Henry Crossman.
In 1802 Jame G. Moffet in New York rolled brass rolls turned by power from cattle harnessed to a sweep, according to William Lathrop, The Brass Industry, (Mount Carmel, Conn., 1926). Moffet thus was a pioneer in American sheet brass.
A man named Abel Porter was the firstr to do rolling, Lathrop adds.
