We're still using halves at work. Have been so since the "alleged" coin shortage. I like using them. Mostly get positive responses. Some people even thought they were dollars and I had to correct them. I've managed to snag a couple of 40% coins and I saw a proof the other day.

Planning to fly home tomorrow but my travel plans have been disrupted by bad weather on East Coast and am still on train heading very slowly for New York.
Safe travels!

I got home today. Full marks to American Airlines for changing my missed transatlatic flight for one on the following day!
I did dispose of a couple more half dollars in New York before leaving the USA. I gave one to a beggar on Sixth Avenue and another to a strange guy who was dancing his way through a NY subway car and asking for money from passengers. Both said "Thank you!"

$24,099 to go!

It was fun to get Presidential dollars in change in the ticket machines on the NY subway but also annoying that those machines don't take half dollars!
