Default Coin Roll Hunting Mother load

I know this isn't a metal detecting find, but what I found today, is simply unbelievable. Went to my local bank to get some coins, and dump about $50 in halves. I filled the bag on the machine so they had to replace it. Figured I had nothing to loose by asking, so I asked if they would be willing to sell the bag to me. They made a phone call and before i knew it, I was in my truck with $1000 dollars worth of halves. I am at work right now, and I cannot concentrate because from the outside of the bag, I know for sure that I have............................

SEE BELOW

This is going to be an unbelievable evening for me. I will post pics tonight and give a total that will be larger than above, I am being conservative with the counts above.

OK... Here we go. As expected... It was WAY better than I predicted.

Totals are 185 Silver half dollars:

(24) 90% Kennedy Halves
(10) 40% Kennedy Halves
(55) Walking Liberty Halves
(96) Franklin Halves


I am completely at a loss for words. I was just in the right place at the right time. Here are the pics.

Default any clue why this was moved?

I had originally put this in mind blowing finds, but It was moved to the Whats the Value section? Can someone move it back or explain why it was moved? We all know the value..
