Interesting. This is clearly not a dept store.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Well, if the picture above was taken 1972, that makes sense :) Interesting they still stuck to their old ways, though. If there was a 10, there's a good chance that a 5 exists also.
