$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,
