    HALF OF MY HALF DOLLARS ARE 90% SILVER!!!

    Well, I got up and went to the drive thrus at the banks in my town. Out of 3 banks, one had 2 half dollars. Got 1 1977, and 1 1964. Worth the trip. THE MOTHER LOAD!!!! About a month ago, I searched 2 rolls of half dollars and got skunked. Today was my second trip, and had 50% keepers. WOOOHOOOO. Also bought 50 dollars in dimes.

    update: just cashed the dimes, and was going back for 75 dollars worth, but my mom and dad are going to a friends house, and the bank drive thru was full, so I told her to orget about it. (no drivers license) 0 keepers for $50.00 in dimes But that 90%er made my day

    Grats on the half! 90% are always awesome finds.

    Dimes are averaging like 1 in $250 these days, so you didn't really get skunked there.

    Keep it up.

    Yeah, sorry for the misleading information, but I couldn't resist.
    I'm going to get up early in the a.m. and hit the banks for some 50 centers.

    That's what pulls in the readers.

    I have been known to exaggerate or tease in my subject line a bit.

    There may have been more halves in those banks. You need to get in the bank and get personal with the tellers. You said you don't have a license so I assume you are in high school. Talk to those tellers, let them know you want to fill some holes in your coin books.

    On the other hand I take it all back (stay in the car) if you have purple spikey hair, metal rods sticking out of your face and haven't taken a shower in a week.
    When I did yard sales I was dollardan. No yard sales where I am now.
