1780 - 1859
Étienne Jean Baptiste Cartier (1870-1859) co-founded the journal Revue Numismatique (Numismatic Review) in France with Jean-Francois de Paule-Louis de La Saussaye in 1836. The two served as coeditors from 1836 until 1856 when they sold it. In the early 1800s, Cartier held a position in the currency exchange at the Paris Mint, but was forced out during the 1830 Revolution and withdrew to Amboise. Cartier specialized in medieval and modern, particularly French, coins.
