I have not been hunting much lately. The few times I have looked around it has been extremely slow. It has been difficult to find any halves at banks. This is the slowest I have seen it in the last few years. Yesterday had some luck got this group from a couple if stops. Hopefully the tide will start to turn.

Went out hunting on Friday nothing doing at all. Stop at one of my favorite Pizza joints fot lunch. It just so happens I have a bank a couple of doors away. Go in teller says your so lucky I do have a few halves. She pulls out an envelope with $21.50 in halves. She then starts counting them I see quite a few Walkers. I always get nervous when this happens thinking they are going to say wait a minute I'll take these. She just counts them and hands them to me with a very nice smile and Thank You. Needless to say I was very excited with this haul but am still amazed that someone would just drop these at the bank for face. Final tally 22 Walkers, 10 Ben's and 2 JFK 90%. Not a 40% in the group. Just crazy.

My friend and I just started half dollar roll hunting. First five boxes were pretty lucrative. However we just hit box 6 and it was a haul

25 hits.
12 NIfC
10 silvers (all JFK),
1 87
1 70
1 86 commemorative

Box 6
21 hits
2 NIFC
15 silvers JFK
2 87
1 walking liberty
1 91 S

I must say I enjoyed the quarter hunting for the dubbies, but I think the quickness you can do a box of halves plus the hits make this a bit more enjoyable! Happy hunting.

Amazing finds everyone; good job on finding the 1970 half dollar Thomas21w. Also the 1986 commemorative is cool.

You were overdue for a score - that's a great one!

I wonder if these tellers think it's an every day occurrence that someone would drop off close to 2 rolls worth of 90% silver coins - especially those where many of the coins are 80 years or older. Unbelievable, though the 40% Monster Box you got a few months ago still stuns me. Haven't got one of those yet.

I finally found a bank that had a roll of customer wrapped half and it din not contain anything to good. I'll try to find some more halfs though.
