    Cool Awesome find at a random bank today!!! _*~_*~_*~_*~PICTURES_*~_*~_*~_*~

    Hey folks, I was out of my area earlier today and decided why not hit a few banks?
    Here's the totals for a 3-mile streach of road with 6 banks on it,

    Bank 1: denied, had no account.
    Bank 2: denied, had no account(same bank as bank #1)
    Bank 3: had no half dollars and could not spare any boxes of coin.
    Bank 4: denied, had no account.
    Bank 5: $30 in CWR halves, skunk.
    Bank 6: no halves, but the teller told me she had an old foreign coin and i could buy it for $1... she hands me a 1925-p SILVER PEACE DOLLAR! my first ever real silver dollar in circulation... gotta love them clueless tellers, this is the find of the week for sure!

    Good job. I always ask for halves and large dollar coins but, I have almost given up on the chance of every getting a real silver dollar handed to me. I would make that a semi-regular stop so she knows your coming if she ever gets any more of them foreign coins again.

    I never thought a teller would hand me one either, my area is filled with silver snatchers, I guess out of my area they don't pick as much... though you would wonder, won't a large dollar coin like that from 1925 spark some attention?

    As discolored as that 'foreign' coin is with the black specs it really isn't an album piece. Tell you what, I'll double your money for it AND pay the postage so you can feel good about helping that nice teller out. Heck, I might even just triple your money for you since you are nice guy and all.

    Congrats!!!!! I am truly happy for you!!!!!

    I scored a common Peace dollar when I was just starting CRH...out of sheer, unadulterated luck...from an older teller that was complaining about how the coin wouldn't fit into her coin tray.

    Way to go, BB!

    BTW, I sometimes think that America 1925 IS a different country than America 2012.

    Keep on Rollin' !

    Yes, I've never really understood why banks deny simple things like selling CWRs and such to non-customers, I can understand something like cashing checks that aren't drawn on that bank, but shouldn't banks focus on providing great customer service -before- people are customers so they will choose that bank when they need a bank?

    I mean, there's no possibility for loss in doing it and the worst you can do is gain a new customer.
