The space occupied by a bag of standard silver dollars, piled snugly in mass, is 12 inches long, 9 wide, and 4 deep. Small silver (subsidiary) packs better than dollars. The weight of a thousand dollars in subsidiary silver being 56 ounces less than that of an equal value in standard silver dollars, the space occupied by each vary but little from each other.
