Synopsis
Two supposed spectators on tour at the U. S. Mint pull a ruse in order for one of them to be locked inside a vault, then steal the plates for printing $100 bills. The theft is neatly done and the FBI arrests the night watchman for the crime. The thieves then kidnap the night watchman from jail, force him to help print some $100 bills and then plan to turn the man over to the cops so he can take the rap.
