James B. Longacre (August 11, 1794 – January 1, 1869) was the Chief
Engraver of the United States Mint (1844–1869). He was born in
Delaware County, Pennsylvania, becoming an apprentice in an engraving
firm. He portrayed some of the leading men of his day in illustrations;
support from some, such as John C. Calhoun, led to his federal
appointment. In Longacre's first years, the Philadelphia Mint was
dominated by Director Robert M. Patterson and Chief Coiner Franklin
Peale, who resented Longacre's appointment. Peale and Patterson nearly
got Longacre fired, but the chief engraver convinced Treasury Secretary
William M. Meredith that he should be retained. In 1856, Longacre
designed the Flying Eagle cent, but the coin proved difficult to strike,
leading to the Indian Head cent three years later. He died in 1869,
succeeded by William Barber. Longacre's coins are generally well-
regarded today, though sometimes criticized for lack of artistic
advancement.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
