COIN-INSPIRED DECORATIONS IN ARCHITECTURE: READING, PA

Bob Merchant writes: "I read the E-Sylum article about coin
decorations in bank building architecture. About two months
ago I was in Reading, Pennsylvania when I noticed a bank building
that had some beautiful copper decorations around the front
windows, including a Walking Liberty Half Dollar (both sides).
I took some photos."

[Bob provided links to several photos - thanks! I've put four
of them on the E-Sylum photo archive - here are the links.  There
are other U.S. coin decorations on the building; look close and
you'll see a Buffalo Nickel, Standing Liberty Quarter and others.
Are any of our readers near Reading?  Some close-up photos of
these other decorations would be nice to see. -Editor]
