Default Half dollar score

While waiting for my next half dollar box I walked into another branch of mine for my usual coin and asked if they had any half dollars. Usually when they do it's a small handful all loose.

Well the same bank teller that hooked me up with one of my wells fargo banks bags last time said she just had someone turn in 8 rolls. I said I'd take them all. Driving home I said to myself those wraps look kind of old.

I only have opened 1/8 rolls and pulled 5 40%
1966
1967x2
1968
1969

still shaking. Still have the 7 rolls to do plus other denominations.

Congrats on the silver haul! I order one box per week from my bank... but they never seem to have any rolled or loose coin turned in by customers because they have a coin machine. HH!

Congrats! You know we used to throw those 40% back?
40ís are the new 90ís.

Break the coin machine?

I could tell the 40% were throw backs. Found nine between two rolls out of eight full rolls. Not one 90%. I still don't even own a half dollar that is pre 1965 and 90%.

What's funny is the silver content is about equal to a 90% quarter. So while they were mining all the quarters they ignored 40% half's.

Break the coin machine? Oy vey, youíre a newb, right? No, thereís an easier way. Find the head teller, and politely ask to buy the bag contained within the machine.

It isnít so much the 40% are intentionally thrown back, like back in the day when the Hunts tried to corner the silver market and drove the price sky high, and wanted as close to pure silver as possible. Of course, later they lost their shirts. 40% silver halves cost more to refine. Nowadays, they pretty much just change hands among stackers.

The good news is that I have a great relationship with the head teller, and already can buy the bags once full. The bad news is that because of the fact that they have a fee usage and are a smallish sized credit union, it takes forever to fill the half dollar bags. It's a definite exercise in patience for me!

Nice score...Royal Congrats! Around here, no teller takes in rolled coins, but insist that the rolls be broken and dumped into their machine. The only think KT ever ran across is someone tried to dump some Ike dollars in the dump machine and jammed it up, so the bank bought them off the person! 176 of them. By the time KT heard about it the teller, who had been giving them out as novelties to customers in their transactions, was down to 35. His Majesty bought the rest of them and recovered one 40% Ag Ike from them! HA HA Too bad KT did not get them all!

After dumping one day, someone called the bank and said they were bringing in several rolls of silver halves. The teller called KT and He made a fast run to the bank. The teller had 6 rolls of Kens, hand rolled, and sold them to KT. He promptly took them to the dump machine and sorted out the silver and dumped the rest...got 8 40%ers from those rolls...so you never know!

Scored again. 28 silvers from my banks and 3 from a box today. They handed me a bunch of loose silvers.

That is a definite silver trainload of 40%ers you got there! Anyone nowadays would be joyful for such a bounty!

i never found many 90% halves as far back as seven years ago, but found 40ís galore. I sold about $2k worth in silver value, and bought the 90ís.
