    Great article!

    I don't understand why (or how) a person in 1938 could "deposit" gold coins in a bank. The Gold Act of 1933 had made them no longer legal tender. Citizens had a specific amount of time to turn their gold in to the Federal government. I believe the deadline was shorter than five years.

    This is not a criticism of the first-rate article. Thank you for posting it!

    Good luck to all,

    The Old Bookaroo
