    51% keeper rate

    Hey Y'all...

    I ain't been having much luck here lately, but I had a good 'un yesterday.

    A teller called and told me they had the new Hawaii State quarters in. I don't collect those, but the tellers know I do search coins, hence the call. I asked if they had any halves, she had $70 and another teller had $70.

    I TRIED to talk myself outta driving 30 miles one-way to pick 'em up, but I'd been in the bank about ten days ago and they didn't have any halves at the time. George (the subconscience) kept telling me "GO, GO, GO!!!"

    So I went....

    Fourteen hand rolls, from two tellers, seven each different wrappers.

    So I just had to uncrimp and look the ends in the parking lot. Oh, WOW......

    All seven darker colored rolls had silver showing on BOTH ends..... this is looking good....

    The lighter colored rolls had a few showing... hummmmm.....

    Got back to the house, and did the dirty deed....

    Two hunnert and eighty coins yielded 143 keepers.....

    37 90% and 116 40%.

    I'll take 'em.

    I respect your opinion, but not when I know better.

    Fish... or cut bait.
