    Two Firsts in One Day...

    While dumping my halves yesterday I stopped at a few branches in between to ask for halves. I didn't find any silver halves but as I was about to leave one branch a nice young teller told me that all she was these two big old dollars and she really wanted to get rid of them. I heard the clank when she grabbed them out of her drawer - a clad Ike and a 1972 40% silver Ike to go with it!!! My first ever in the wild - glad she reminded me that she had them as I forgot to ask for large dollars at this branch. Let this be a lesson for all of you - always ask for halves and big dollars or funny coins/money!!! Later in the day I was Christmas shopping and when getting my change I spotted a yellowy nickel in the tellers drawer and saw the P mintmark above Monticello and asked her for it - sure enough it was a 1943P silver war nickel - another first for me!!!

    Nice hit on the silver Ike. I have found several clads, but never a 40%er! Perhaps a Peace Dollar is next?
