    I'm Baaaaaaack!!

    Hey Hey,

    Long time no chat guys! I've been lurking in the shadows for the last month or so. I'm happy to report that I have crawled out from underneath the rock I have been hiding under. I received blessings from my Chief Financial Officer ('da Wife) to put $1K into "the business". So I stopped at "our bank" on the way home from work to withdraw the cash. I popped the question: "Do you have any half dollars available, loose or rolled?". The vault teller went to the back, came out and said "I have $1260 in rolled." "Oh boy", I thought to myself. "$1000 in rolled, please." I said.

    I spent more time staring at the rolls in the front seat on the drive home then keeping my eyes on the road.

    (Drum roll please....)

    DOH!!!

    I bagged the 1K into the deposit bag and headed down to "our bank" here in town. I met with the Service Manager and the Vault Teller. I described my intentions and after a few phone calls, the Service Manager told me this:

    1. "We will allow you to turn in your bags and immediately exchange them for paper money"
    2. "We will allow you to bring 6 deposit bags per week (2 scheduled pickups per week = 3 and 3)."
    3. "We can order 8 boxes a week for you (2 scheduled deliveries per week = 4 and 4)

    The Vault Teller told me this:

    "We have other people that come in frequently asking for halves. But you're a lot nicer then them. Let me have your number and I will call you when rolls come in."

    YAHTZEEE!

    For "shits-and-giggles", I ran down to the other branch across town and was told:

    "We'll be able to handle 3 bags once a week and we can order 4 boxes for you."

    I was so happy I forgot to ask them if they had any halves!

    DOUBLE YAHTZEEE!

    Even though I was sprayed by the infamous "skunk", I built some new relationships today (which is worth more then every silver half I have found and will ever find!).

    I'll hit up some more banks after work tomorrow!

    I hope everyone is doing well!

    H$H!!

    Good to hear from you too jarlbartar! The job is going very well! I nearly passed out when I saw my first pay check. I haven't seen that high of a number in a long time. There is one downfall to working Monday through Friday, I can't do a "super-mega bank run". I'll just have to pre-plan my runs and execute them after work.

    Thanks for the luck and H$H!! to you too!

    It's good to be back Buff! Reading about everyone's finds here on the forum inspired me to get back in the game (OK, I admit... It didn't take much effort or thought. You can't score Ag if you don't look for it!)

    I'm glad you enjoy my posts. I heard about "how bad this forum has become" and I will do my part to keep it positive and to encourage others. We're all in this together!

    H$H!!

    Exactly, when I got someone's silver collection dumped, I forgot to ask for nickels and pennies. But I corrected my self and next week I went to the same branch and picked those rolls. Remember there is always a second chance.
    Nice to see you again!

    AMEN!

    I think this was the first time since the beginning of my CRH hobby that I walked into a bank and didn't pop the question! I need to get my "A-game" on!

    Good to see you too C-h!
