It was a sight not usually observed in a bank: A depositor distributing envelopes containing currency to the tellers and office staff.The money was a farewell gift, a reminder of good service from a satisfied customer at the Mercantile Safe Deposit and Trust Company's oldest office, located in downtown Baltimore.When the brass lock on the branch's massive iron front door is snapped shut tomorrow afternoon, it won't be just for the weekend. Because the branch is under-used, it will be closed for good, something neither the 1904 Baltimore Fire nor the Great Depression could do.All week long, flower bouquets and cards have arrived at the city landmark at the northeast corner of Calvert and Redwood streets, the 107-year-old home of a bank that Baltimoreans often call the Merc -- a venerable institution, a symbol of old and conservative Baltimore wealth.

Furlong Baldwin, chairman and chief executive officer of Mercantile Bankshares Corp."It [the FDIC] would not be in the jam it is today," Baldwin told the bank's shareholders at the annual meeting yesterday.The government's so-called "too-big-to-fail" policy was evident at the beginning of the year when regulators took over the Bank of New England, one of the largest banks in that region.
