You know the more I think about it I bet the Van Der Linde gang’s chest was filled with gold instead of like stacks of money, if I remember my history classes right there was no standardized banking system in the late 1800s but every dollar was backed by gold (and silver depending on the year) so for being constantly on the move just having the gold itself would just be a lot more convenient
Yep! You’re correct about the banking system. It was really confusing because it could vary from bank to bank and such. Can you imagine how heavy John’s satchel would have been?
