    Sure did! As a docent at the Museum of American Finance on Wall Street, it's one of my favorite questions. There are 3 others- where are they? And did you know the BEP makes currency in Fort Worth, Texas, now as well as in DC?

    Of course I knew! I am sitting next to an encapsulated 1996-W Roosevelt dime, graded by ANACS!

    There is a reason the city is in such a mess. Instead of thinking of ways to encourage people to come to the city and support our business community, they come up with short sighted ways to rob from Peter to pay Paul. Its truly a disgrace!
