Jaobler, wonderful score!

This is inspirational, especially to someone like me who hasn't really looked at halves in recent years. I love the idea of this thread, and I really hope it takes off - I don't have the resources to buy tons of halves at once. It's really nice to see people who search them in smaller amounts.

What kind of arrangement do you have with banks to cash your rejects in? I imagine even a few half dollars is an odd sight for most bank tellers.

Very minor find compared with my last score, but after depositing a check at a local Chase I asked for halves. They had $4.50 worth which included this decent AU silver-clad:

Not a problem for us small-timers! I accumulate my regular small change along with reject halves, roll it all up, and take it in whenever it adds up to $100 or more. No teller has ever complained to me about accepting these deposits.

Bought $360 in rolls at a local Citibank. Teller said they had been there awhile but it wasn't the mother lode I was hoping for. Did pull 4 silver-clad plus several nice 2017-D coins. Could be worse!

$59 worth of halves from a local bank yielded 13 silver-clad, 1 1964-D 90% silver, and a magician coin (haven't seen one of those in years). The interior coin is a fantasy Mexican peso coin.



The red coin is a 1969-D silver-clad. I think this is the first time I've seen a painted silver coin. Usually only the common clad junk gets the paint. The color came off easily with a brief soak in acetone.

I stopped at a local bank which has never before yielded any "keeper" coins. The teller asked if I had an account and I told her "no". She didn't bat an eye, just sold me the 2 half dollars she had and directed me to the other teller who had 14 more coins. The $8 total in halves included a circulated 1964-D, a nice BU 1966, and a 1991-S proof. The 1991-S is exceptional for a bank find: almost mark-free, with deep cameos and perfect sharp rims.

Nice work. I have seen coins like the red one, but didn't know that a little acetone could cure that. Hard to find any halves around here, but you are inspiring me to keep trying.

Stay well,
