One of the robbers held a gun to a security guard's head while his accomplices stole the gold nuggets from the Wells Fargo History Museum, the site where the bank launched in 1852. They escaped in a sedan.

The photos released Thursday show the men in ski masks and gloves that obscure their identities. They're seen next to the SUV covered in broken glass and grabbing a display case. Each man is described as about 6 feet tall.
