Page 14 contains an interesting and somewhat inconspicuous report headed: "Crowds at Banks Seek Anthony Dollar Coins" See photo for 1st report coverage on the initial release of the Sudan B. Anthony dollar coin to the public.
It is noteworthy that this was the first U.S. coin to have a portrait of an actual woman rather than an allegorical female figure such as 'Liberty'.
