One of the blotters pictures the huge safety deposit valut door and has advertising for the bank and its safety deposit box areas. It states that deposits were insured for up to $10,000.
The other blotter pictures a man and a woman doing their banking. It advertises the bank and that FDIC deposit insurance was raised from $5,000 to $10,000
