Retro Baltimore: 50 things we miss

Surplus dollar coins

Surplus dollar coins are stored in the warehouse vault at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's Baltimore branch. The boxes in cart at center each contain $1000 in dollar coins, and the bags on the shelves contain $2000 in dollar coins. The bank is dealing with an over-supply of the unpopular dollar coins, caused by congressional mandate.
