Charles Solomon (1843-1899) Silver Dollar Smith, a politician and saloon owner with his bar on Essex Street, New York, had one hundred silver dollars embedded in cement as a floor pavement design. After his death his son took over the saloon and customers began stealing the silver dollars out of the floor. More than twenty-two were missing before the son had the remaining dollars removed.
