Gotta love those tellers...
I am fairly knew to CRH but I am already hooked. Just wanted to share my hunting experience today. I haven't ordered boxes from banks yet. I just go after what the banks have on hand. Anyway, first stop today I ask if they have any halves and the teller has two in her tray and asks the other tellers. All in all the first bank has $3.50 in loose halves. I go ahead and buy them and as I'm walking back to my car I take a look and notice a 1964 and a 1967. Gotta love those tellers that keep loose silver in their trays. Here's a pic of my finds for today. Does anyone know about the Mexican piece?

I wonder how long those silver-edged sweeties sat in that tray, looking up at that teller, and she thought nothing of it. (I NEVER find silver halves in tellers' trays here BTW.) Dude, how can you look at a silver edge and not get all hot & bothered?? I don't get tellers that don't cull silver right in front of their own eyes!

The Mexican 1 peso is a 1970-1983 design. In your condition, it is worth maybe $0.25 to $1.
Tell me the year and type and I will tell you the exact value. It is the old peso, so the "face value" is 1/1000 of a modern peso, or $0.00007.

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.
