When stuff like that shows up in change I suspect someone was getting tight for money.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Agreed, or they just don't know any better. A buddy of mines grandfather was ready to drop about 50 or so Kennedy 40-90% off at the bank until I told him what he had. But yet he refused to dump the stack of SBA dollars!

People know what they know. Despite what is real. Won't be convinced even if you pay them 15X face value for the halves and won't for the SBA's.

That would make my day!

My story is, back in the 80's I was working in a 7-Eleven convenience store. An elderly made came to the counter with a soft drink, and handed me a Morgan dollar to pay for it.

I was kind enough to point out what he had, but he insisted on paying with the Morgan. Later on, I swapped it for a dollar out of my own pocket. It was a circulated common date Morgan, but I was grinning ear to ear!

Stuff like this happens a lot. Some time ago a teller at a bank I go to showed me a roll of Silver Dollars someone just turned in as if they were just coins.

These things are always a mystery - somebody obviously put these aside, and then somebody spends them. Stolen in a real burglary? "Borrowed" from dad's or grandpa's silver stash? Too lazy to go somewhere and at least get around melt value? Clueless? Sheesh, that's $66 in silver. My favorite along these lines was when I worked as a soda jerk around 1977 and someone came in and paid for ice cream with a crisp uncirculated 1934 $5 silver certificate.

It's $1.50 face which is about $30 in silver. Still crazy that they didn't try to at least get melt for it though.

Oops, I was going off NGC "melt value." Should have checked the math. When did they start messing that up? It used to be accurate but now seems to just display the current price per oz without using the ASW.
