Why does it exist? When was it built? Is it still in the original building? What interesting things have
happened there? What do they make now?
These brand new H.I.P. Pocket Change pages cover the facilities at San Francisco, Denver, Fort Knox, Philadelphia, and West Point. Stop by and come inside!
