Nice! My wife was a teller up until a few years ago...she used to bring silver home all the time...her best hauls include two solid rolls of steel wheaties and 58 solid rolls of wheat. Her co-worker once scored 20 Morgan dollars.

When my son was working the drive thru at Taco Bell, in just a few months he brought home over six silvers, two buffalos and over a dozen wheats...hes not a collector and he only half paid attention to the change in the till.

Nice to see some coins like that are out there, in circulation! It's been a few decades since I've found silver in my change. I wonder if any of those were put in circulation during the Great American Coin Hunt.

Metal Maniac, your wife has a great spot for finding collectible coins. Both my grandmother and a buddy have worked at the PO, and both found many silvers over the years.
