    Talking My Epic Motherload!

    I'm a little lightheaded....

    So far I have searched through 14 rolls and I have come up with 1 1966 40% and 1x 1976 proof.

    I went to a bank on the way to work this morning. Went through the drive through and asked for halves. The teller first looked like she was going to deny me. She had a concerned look on her face and took a moment to think. Sort of like she was thinking she wasn't supposed to be giving these out. I knew my chances of getting rolls was diminishing so I threw out my last resort "pity" line, "I'm looking for my grandfather. He can't get out of the house anymore." The concerned look from her face disappeared and she told me she had $50 in CWR halves. I bought them all and drove to work.

    I got to work and put all five rolls on my desk. I opened the first roll and checked for an ender. It wasn't. I was cautiously optimistic however. I opened the roll and....SILVER! In fact, each roll had silver!

    Here's the breakdown:

    Roll 1 :
    1963D Ben
    1942 Walker x 2

    Roll2:
    1964 JFK x5
    1940 Walker
    1951S Ben
    1957D Ben
    1942 Walker

    Roll 3:
    1964 JFK Ender (my first ender!)

    Roll 4:
    1964 JFK
    1963 Ben

    Roll 5:
    1962D Ben Ender (Bender )
    1964 JFK x3
    1943 Walker
    1952 Ben x2
    1961 Ben
    1957D Ben
    1942 Walker

    That my friends is 25 total 90% half dollars! Grand total for each type of half: 6x Walkers, 9x Bens, 10x JKF

    My head is spinning. I'm sure I stumbled onto either grandma's old stash or a bank teller's collection. I suspecting the former.

    Here are some pics of the rims and enders. I'll put more pics of the entire find when I get home.

    Was it worth lying for?

    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.

    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.

    Congrats OP!

    That's exactly what I'm saying.

    The coins are the property of the bank not the teller. It would be different if I went into a coin shop and the owner refused to sell me some coins because well...they're the store owner's property. I would have accepted it and moved on. A bank is in the business to handle money, not sell it. I didn't snipe someone's box order nor did I see anyone's name on the rolls. 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.
