Just carl, Tsotl,
You were talking about me dealing with banks or dumping large amounts of coins over 100 per ordor. I have 5 banks acounts with 5 banks. 3 of them have machices to dump coins. Its free to members. I drive to town once an week and hit 10 banks within 10 miles of each other. I got to go buy food and stuff in town .
This friday I hit 10 banks and went home with an car load of coins.
1. 1000 dollar in halfs and 1 box of nickels , 2 boxes pennys.
2. Next bank 4 boxs of pennys, 1 box quarters, 2 boxs of nickels.
3. Next bank 2 boxs of nickels and other 10 banks I got more pennys and nickels .
4. I lefht my house 2:00 pm and got home at 4:30 and used 1 quarter tank of gas in my 1992 town car on trip.
Totol Haul on coins for me search this weekend or the next week.
8 boxs of nickels.
10 boxes of pennys 5 of them are 2008 bu denver for eBay. 1 box of 2007 bu coins . I dont search new coins. Onley 4 boxs totol to go thru.
1 quarter box
2 boxs of half dollars I went through and found 11 silver coins already.
I know what your telling about banks out on large amount coins. I have 5 totol dump banks I deal with. My other Bank freaked out when dumped over 4850 face worth half dollars into there machices. I tryed to get do an special ordor and they freaked out over that . I learned after that I need to spread them across serval banks becides one bank totol. As many coins I deal with I dont have time roll them all up and toss them into machices. I just dump money into account and dont ask for money or coins at dump banks. I go to next branch and pull money in cash to buy more coins at my banks. Its cool there 15 or 12 banks on the in the same small town I deal with. I may open an account with another bank in town I dont deal with to buy and sell coins.
I love the banks in Walmart
or inside grocery stores where I use shoping carts to move coins in and out of there. Its easy to move it out since it very heavy.
It may be an waste of time since you guys are correct it takes thousands of dollars of worth coins to finish sets like 1938 through 1961 nickels. You can almost forget about finding silver dimes and quarters . It may beter to buy prebuilt sets or junk rolls of coins from dealers. For what I learned the onley boxs worth searching are Half dollar boxs. The problem with that they all special ordor since no banks in town carry them. I will need special ordor each box on half dollars. Those Bank tellers tell me I am onley in person in town who ever ask for half dollars or wants them. One Bank teller told me 220 face on them I sold her in summer of 2007 was still there in jan 2008. My old rolls just siting in same bank after 6 monlths. It got me nobody wants or uses halfs anymore.
You guys are right it may more trouble than its worth to search coin boxs to try finish sets. Its take to much these days to find old coins or low mints in nickels. Those pre 1964 silver and pre 61 nickels, wheat pennys are so hard these days. It will break your bank and back moving all those heavy boxs around like I been doing.
