    I went to a local bank about 20 miles away today, to their main HQ's branch while on business. To my delight, they had a free coin counter tp customers (this is my main personal bank). I grabbed my $500 of halves to dump from the car, and only $49 filled a bag.

    I asked if that is a $500 bag (yes), does it get filled often (nope), can I buy it (probably), and can I look at it for a minute (sure). Well, I saw one silver rim and knew I was buying it. I also grabbed a box of dimes from them.

    I am about to get into it....I will post the results!

    "What is in this $500 bag of halves?"

    half dollars
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Answer: 2 walkers, 5 bens, 3 90% kens, 13 40%'s. Also some other foreign and clad. This is my second best find so far. Totally broke a skunk streak. I also had 3 roosie dimes in two boxes today. Very good day! About 5.7 oz. I just sold & shipped 32 oz, nice to start up a new stack with this great find. Hopefully when I dump the clad tomorrow I will still be feeling good about this bag.

    And here we are, I can see two British pennies plus a loonie and a toonie.
    Good score, this bag partially proves someone's (can remember the name), who proposed an idea of bags containing "wild".
    The "wild" will likely result in a decent silver score + a couple of foreign goodies.

    Loonie. Ill never get over how funny that is. My Canadian friends just stared at me while I was laughing about it, then I was like "oh, you're serious, that's really the name of this coin?...what do you call the two dollar coin again?" Good times.

    That is a tits find! Every time I try to by bags of halves (which isn't very often,) I always get denied. "Sorry, we HAVE to ship them out."

    The other coins:

    3 quaters, 1 nickel, 1 SAC dollar. 2008 20cent Australian, 1996 Canadian 2 dollar, 1937 & 1948 One Penny Coin (british?) and a 1981 New Penny. I am not really familiar with these last three. (and one batting cage token!)

    This machine had no reject slot. They said there was a magnet, but it looks like everything else would end up in some bag. The other banks I go to to dump all sort out everything foreign, I have not got even a single canadian dime past them.
