Nice haul!

Historically, silver prices are tanking again so collections get dumped. Nowís the time to be hunting, as sentiment is so low. My LCS isnít even interested in 40% silver...reminds me of the mid-1980ís to the mid 2000 years. Somethingís bound to happen again to drive prices up, hopefully.

It takes most guys years to amass a stack of halfs like that, and you got it all at face!

One never knows, has happened once...KT bought from a teller $48 in halves and recovered 18 40%ers in the lot.

Needler, Royal congrats on another great take! Best of luck in the near future! Sure glad you are down in Florida and KT is in Arkansas!
KT! Ask the head teller about buying the bag off the counting machine. Iíve done that in the past, under the bankís condition that I not come back complaining of shortages. In fact, the bags have always been over (quarters, dimes, foreigns etc...).

Wow, amazing find. Someone did not know the value of what they were in possession of.

Most people just don't care. Even people who are old enough to have had nothing but silver for their change don't care.

I have talked to people that work in places where they handle just tons of coins about silvers and they act like I'm weird.

The bankers and the media have done an alarmingly good job at brainwashing people as to what is valuable and what is junk. It took them 2 generations to erase Gold and Silver from people's minds and replace it with fiat currency and debt.
. Sad.

Not the whole time. Been lurking for the last year. I repurchased a newer model compadre and Bounty hunter tracker IV.

Yeah! Well it worked! Case in point....

The Local Undertaker had a special request recently...An old Hoarder Coin Collector guy died and left behind 10,000 silver dollars, Morgans from the 1800's Peace dollars, and the like...in his will he stated he wanted to be buried with his Silver coins, since his Family never appreciated his hobby and didnt know the value of a dollar, PM's, History of fiat money, working hard or saving...

The Undertaker told the family that that is just too much weight to put in the coffin, the bottom would fall out! So instead of putting in the coins, the Undertaker will write a personal check for $10,000 to the dead guy, and put that inside the coffin and keep the coins himself for the trade!!

Well, the Family said, "A $10,000 check huh? Gpaw told us his coins are worth at least 10X face value!"...The Undertaker hemmed and hawed, finally said, ..."Thats a lot of money! I can do it though! But I'll have to write a $50,000 check, and toss in my Visa card!"...
