    What do you say to tellers?

    I'm sure this has already been asked before but I couldn't find the answer. I'm hoping that, being a noob/first-time poster here, I'll get a free pass this time. Anyways what I'm wondering is... what do y'all say to bank tellers that ask about what you do with boxes and boxes of coins? Do you tell the truth and say you're just hunting for silver? Or do you pretend to be filling out old coin books and that you're just missing a few dates. I'm about to order my first two boxes of halves tomorrow and want to be prepared for any weird looks, haha. I can sorta see the benefit to both answers; I'm just wondering what you guys do. Thanks and HH!

    I tell them I'm going to roll around in the tub with them, but then again, my Grandma and my cousin work at the bank I go to, so it's all laughs. :P
    Good luck!

    just tell them you're looking for anything old, interesting, or collectible. Just be honest but you don't have to go out of your way to say "I'm collecting all silver pre 1965 (or 1971) coins"

    Haha, thanks for all the quick, entertaining responses. I think I'll be going with Silver's advice on this one though.

    Just tell them you collect old coins; that you are a coin collector. "I am always looking for old coins." It is best to not say anything if possible, except Thank You. I had a couple supervisors/managers hear that I was only a collector, and cut me off from ordering with a "this is for our business customers...You are wasting everyone's time..." which are now my favorite dump banks! If the tellers are cool with you, and are politely doing their job, you can make friends and perhaps have a extremely consistent pick up spot. I also bought a collection of a teller's sniped coins from my friendliest pickup bank a few weeks ago.

    What every you do - do not mention the "s" word - SILVER!

    I have had discussions with tellers about silver, but only if they bring it up, and I make sure I don't give out any details on how to find it, what to look for, etc. I do say if you every find some & want to sell it, here's my number.

    These people work hard for me, so when they ask what I do, I tell them.
    "I'm a coin collector. I look for the older coins."
    They deserve that much respect, anyway.

    Since I do very little CWR's I have never had any competition come from it that I know about.

    After all, if you are really into secrecy, why post your finds and methods here?

    Keep on Rollin' !

    I tell them I am pathologically afraid of accidentally ripping up my paper money, so I exclusivity deal with coins for my currency needs.
