Hi all. I just thought I'd share some of the finds from my latest day of noodling;

$240 50c
1966 round x 70
1985 x 1
1993 x 2
2000 incused x 1

The bank asked if my partner wanted the round 50c when she mentioned she was getting the coins for me to search through!

Just had a good day!

A great result b_j_w_79 !. Goes to show that it is sometimes useful to mention your interest in unusual coins when approaching a bank teller.
With that success you ought to buy a lottery ticket !.

I am thinking of dropping something off to the bank next time I'm in the area as a thankyou. It's all about building relationships and now they know I collect they might be able to help me out again in the future. I might have to mention that I collect banknotes as well and see what they come up with .

The problem is I might have to sell the coins to help pay for our upcoming wedding. Still a nice bonus!

Whatever it takes, that relationship needs to be nurtured. Got to take care of your sources and treat them nice!

Sell some on eBay and you have well and truly paid for your noodling stock.
I assume face value only!

Put a pic of your incused and I will do the same for the one I found the same day. Doesn't hurt to make everyone else jealous.

Definitely pays to cultivate bank staff. I just had a call that a customer wants to bring in a bag of 1¢ and 2¢ (amount not specified). Would I be interested in buying them?
And, a branch in a nearby town has some too -would you want to buy them as well?

Minimum amount they can return is $25 face value of one denomination. So, selling on saves sitting on them for years and no paperwork.

Win-Win.

Well I got the 1¢ and 2¢ this afternoon. They have been sitting in a box in the garage for years. The customer also brought in 5¢ from the same box and they kept them aside for me. Just over $11 of 2¢, nearly $5 of 1¢ and about $24 of 5¢.
That should keep me busy for a few days.

Batch from other branch to come later.
