The teller at the bank only had $2.50 in loose halves, but she asked the teller next to her, who had $40 in rolls as well. I said I'd take them all and $100 in quarters too. When I got out to the car and looked in the bag, I knew it was going to be good since I saw that 3 of the 5 loose halves were silver and one was a 2003 NIFC. The rolls contained an additional 15 NIFCs, including a 1987-D, and two more 90% silvers (both bicentennial S minted business strikes). I also noticed after opening the bag that the 1964 was a proof. The quarters were pretty good as well, although they couldn't compete with the halves. One 2019 W, a couple of minor center-design single squeeze DDRs, and a decent die clash. Over all, not a bad day!

I agree. Any day that you can pick up silver for face value is a good day.

I envy Americans who can come to the bank like this and find old silver coins. In many countries of the world, the currency has already changed several times and it is impossible to find old coins, especially silver ones, since they either went out of circulation and were melted down or have been with collectors for a long time.

Bicentennial halves are 40 per cent if they are the Silver NIFC.

@Pacificoin you are correct. I don't encounter them often, so I'd never bothered to look it up and assumed they were the same composition as modern NIFC silver struck by the San Fran mint.
