    Banks won't order boxes of Halves, south of Boston

    I went to 3 different banks so far today, none will allow me, a customer, to order boxes of halves.

    I hear all the time about people ordering halves. Can anyone give me a line on what banks may allow a customer to order halves?

    Just spent some time on the phone, 3 more banks won't order halves but then two said they would, the first I am not sure about as I was told no problem at TD Bank and then when they couldn't get them they said no.

    The other Dedham Savings said yes they can order them, it is $1000 per box. I am assuming that is a box of 2,000 not 1,000!

    I am way south of Boston (like several states below) and can get boxes no problem. I actually turn down a lot of offers to order them for me.

    Just got off the phone with Dedham Savings, they originally said they would order the halves but when they called back they said that they "will" order the halves but they are not really happy doing it.
    They said they get charged to order coins and so they will do it this one time but I own the coins and CANNOT bring them back to the bank. Of course I have two banks with coin counters that I will dump them at.
    They also said they normally ONLY order coins for their commercial customers and are reluctant to order for other customers. They said they had to discuss this with several managers and finally decided to LET me order some coins.

    I will need to find a bank that will actually do that willingly

    I know when I first asked my pickups whether they could order me halves they all said no. This wasn't because they couldn't,but actually just because there wasn't a line on their coin order form to include half dollars, so they didn't know that they actually could.

    Hmm, I just tried Bank of America and they said they couldn't.

    I will talk to the manager at TD Bank and see if he can force them to do something, but I don't hold out much hope.

    Tad bank can't do it, it's a corporate policy. So you can scratch them off the list... BoA is pulling your chain... Lol

    If it is a pain for Dedham Savings to do it I wouldn't push it, just tell them to not worry about it but that you would appreciate it if they could give you any halves that happen to be in the bank (in teller drawers, the vault, etc.). You can be the "half dollar guy" and ask them every so often if they have any. Better to have a good relationship than one box of halves that will probably be a skunk anyway.

    Bank Of America will and so does Chase, along with Great Western, BBVD Bank and two local credit unions have and do order halves for me here in Arizona. No I don't have accounts at all of these either, but I do drop off boxes of cookies and the tellers look forward to me coming in. I drop off the cookies even when not ordering boxes of halves, keeps them on a friendly basis.

    one thing I have found since getting back into roll hunting is how many people are doing it here in the Boston area. Each bank has told me that at least 6-10 guys are asking for halves and two of my local coin dealers know of at least 25-30 people actively hitting all the banks.

    I have been getting a bunch of dime rolls in the past week, 82 so far, and have found 2 rosies. One thing about dimes is the banks are HAPPY to provide them! WIth them happy to provide them, I can still get the thrill of finding silver while at least asking for halves and CWR's of halves, so that may be the plan, be the dime guy.



    I also have been trying to put together a full set of circ Jeffersons, complete back to 1960 so far and have about a dozen dates to go.

    I live outside of Boston western suburbs, got one from DCU, Loomis, they then told me no more because they are charged, got 4 from Watertown Savings Bank, Brinks now they are refusing. I opened an account with Bank of America and they said they will order for me two different branches. I think they use Gardia at one of the branches. Won't know until next month when I replenish my CRH bankroll. DCU and Rockland Trust in Watertown is Loomis they get my dumps. Hope this helps.

    I think one reason banks DON'T order halves, they don't want to be stuck with them if you are a NO SHOW. Don't think they can return them to coin processor.
