Just an FYI...those are CWR's, not BWR's. That would be amazing if they were BWR's.
CWR = Customer Wrapped
BWR = Business Wrapped
I thought you were lying about the finds because I saw BWR. Makes more sense coming from CWR

Yes. I have just as much right as any customer of the bank to request the rolls. I can tell she was thinking about lying about them. If I had it my way I wouldn't have to drop a little white lie to get half dollars. I of course do not know for certain what her motives were, but her job is to assist bank customers. Not pick and choose for herself or anyone else.

nice good for you, you are a customer there so who cares. Theres nothing better than opening a CRW and seeing silver on the end. This is a sure sign the rest of the roll is all silver or at least most of it.

Awesome score. It's been a while since I had one like that!

Thanks! I believe I got there in the nick of time as well. I went to another bank and I could have sworn I saw some people talking and holding rolls of coins outside the bank. They may have been coin roll hunters as well...or I'm just paranoid delusional due to this hobby.

I was happy for you till I saw how you got them. We all deal with an occasional bad teller. no need to stoop to their level over a few dollars.

I don't see any issue with the little white lie. The teller has the coins but didn't want to do her job and sell them, so OP did what he had to to make the transaction happen. The coins were the bank's property, not hers.

The rolls were worth $50 dollars to the bank and they got $50 for them. No harm no foul. It's not my fault that a teller would even think about not performing her duties. It's honestly a shame that the teller even thought of lying to me about he rolls. It's not in her job description to pick and choose who the bank services. She's not the "loan officer for half dollars".

Call me crazy but I would have told that teller anything she wanted to hear to get 5 rolls of CWR's not even knowing what they contained. Scrape and claw, scrape and claw!

Exactly. Everyone is not going to be honest with you. Especially with money. I didn't force her to give me the halves. I just gave her a little white lie to get her to do her job right.

Dimes, baby, dimes!!
This seems to come up regularly. Sorry, but I disagree. This is a bank we're talking about here. Banks are not exactly flagbearers of honesty. And the OP didn't rob the bank.

Don't get me wrong. I'm as honest as possible. I've only had to use that white lie twice and its usually a last resort. I don't just walk into a bank and play the pity game. I've had tellers ask my why I want the halves. I tell them that I'm trying to start a collection which is true. The sad truth is that the teller forced my hand and I played it. Now if I went the opposite told the teller that I was just looking for silver, I'm willing to bet that 9 times out of 10 she would have told me that they did not have any rolls and searched through them once I left. Who would be the "bad guy" then? In my opinion, the teller's lie would be far worse than mine. Regardless one could argue that a lie is a lie. I happen to disagree but respect that opinion.

good for u....unless that was my bank...and they were holding them for me ... wait a minute were u from....I think i want my halves back

First of all, good for you... Congrats. I laughed a little when reading your post because I too have my own spin on the "sick grandfather who got me into collecting many years ago" Ever since I started using that when needed, I noticed immediate empathy, opposed to the "eyes rolling, you're a pain in my a$$ looks"... I hope the person who asked you if it was worth lying for was just kidding... OF COURSE IT WAS WORTH IT.... PICS TO PROVE IT DID YOU SEE EM? It amazes me as to how people chose to focus their energy on this "COIN ROLL HUNTING FORUM" It's the CRH'ing forum on Tnet, we do not need the "honesty police"..
Grats on the great find. Im super jealous.
