    Can't even get started...

    Called the local bank today and asked about half's, besides the "loose" ones in the drawer they don't sell boxes. The lowest amount is 1,000 dollars, 2,000 half's, the woman was not very enthused about my questions and turns out they will not take any back even if the are rolled. It costs the "too much"... I just do not have 1,000 bucks i can throw to coins and not even be able to get my money back and since the money is for investments only I don't want to just hold them for spending money..
    Looks like i will have to go to a bank in another town... or something.
    Frustrated, but i will get that silver!!!

    Midge(t), I can tell youre a newbie. Rule #2 of CRH, develop Rhino skin. You're going to hear all sorts of fishtales from banks. Find a bank that will order your $500 box, and dump it at the one you just talked about. Don't think they will take it? If you have an account...odds are they will accept it. Dump with joy, and stay thristy my friend.

    Did you ask if you could pick up $500 and then retrieve the other $500 in a couple days?

    I think JM wanted to return the box/es back to the same bank. DO NOT DO THAT!
    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.

    Solid advice CoinFetcher that was my backup plan. I guess it was a little novice to ask the same bank to drop them off at. Ill have to go around town on Tuesday and see what the other banks say.

    Namster: The bank was wanting the whole thousand that day because they had to order it.

It will take a while but you wont tie up money you dont have.

    Do all banks do this? Specifically with coins?
    I've never heard of this but it sounds useful.
    Thanks for the lookout
