    Coin roll hunting

    What do you tell the tellers?

    What do you tell tellers if they ask why you need large amounts of coins?

    If it helps, I was thinking of getting three boxes of halves when I finish my essays for PEA.

    Re: What do you tell the tellers?

    Most tellers know what you are doing getting 3 boxes of halves. I have never worried about telling the truth. Some suggestions of truth I have used.
    #1 I am having a big poker party and my guests are allergic to poker chips.
    #2 My local Boy Scout troop is saving for a trip to the mint and I want to help.
    #3 My wife makes jewelery from them.
    #4 I want to have enough on hand when the paper money disintegrates.
    #5 I need some extra weight to keep my trotline out of the boat channel.
    #6 My favorite is I had a dream that the Kardashians were CRHing and I need to also.
    Good Luck, Jim

    My local tellers I tell them that I am gathering a collection for my younger nephew. Trying to get him interested in something other than getting in trouble.

    Those outside the local area, while I was driving from city to city, I told them my father had a home invasion robbery and they stole his collection. I am out hitting every bank in a 50 mile radius of my house to try to get him a new collection made for Christmas. They let me take rolls, search them, bring them back in and exchange them for more rolls.

    Re: What do you tell the tellers?

    I don't ever lie.

    I just tell them we are collectors.

    Then I usually tell them "I am just a boring person. My daughter and sit at the kitchen table and look for stuff we don't have." All of this is true...she gets more excited about finding silver and proofs more than I do.

    I find that more than 50% of the tellers already know that we are looking for silver.

    I'm burying my families inheritance in a treasure chest. And no, I don't want any presidential coins for my treasure chest just because there gold.

    Re: What do you tell the tellers?

    I tell them I collect coins and that I look for the old really old coins. I go to the same banks so often all the tellers are friends with me and to them I am "The kid who collects old coins and bills" although I am on a first name basis with many of the tellers.

    Re: What do you tell the tellers?

    I tell them I am a Coin Collector, and that I am serious about my hobby.

    Let them drool, as I pick up my boxes. I know that they know I am after silver.

    But do any of them have the self discipline to keep a grand around to use for swing? Hardly.

    I don't think I will be getting any serious competition anytime soon.

    Keep on Rollin' !

    " I am the son of one of the board of directors of this bank and the ceo said it is ok for me to come to buy coins. Do you want to call him? I have his number here in my cell phone"

    "I work at this bank you disrespetfull teller. I am in the legal, oil and gas, commercial lending department, what is your name?"

    " With the force I just make them give me the coins"
