    First Try At Halves ..All Downhill From Here

    Went to the bank today to pick up my box of nickels and boxes of cents that I had ordered . When I got there the teller that I deal with asked me if I would be interested in some CWR halves she had . I asked her how much and she said $100 worth . I said I would take them . When I got out to the truck with them I couldnt wait to see what I had so I opened the first roll. When I poured them out into my hand I heard that distinctive sound of silver. Come to find out the first roll that I opened was a solid $10 1964 Kennedy half roll. I was in shock to say the least. After I got home I opened the other 9 rolls and found another solid roll of 1964 halves and a solid roll of 1967 40% halves. The other 7 rolls we're clad but I did find three Bicentennial halves that I kept . They were old rolls so all I can figure is someone had passed away and their children turned in there coin rolls for face value because all the 64s were separated and the 67s were separated . The part that really makes me sick to my stomach is the teller told me that they had turned in $1,000 of rolled halves to the Fed this morning because they don't keep that much halves in the vault on a normal basis. So who knows how much more silver is floating around out there right now from this stash . I'm sure this find is a one in a lifetime experience but it sure got my blood pressure elevated when I saw that first roll of silver

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    Awesome score! Finds like that are rare but if you do enough volume, you will find another one like it sooner or later - there is a good deal of luck involved, but like anything in life, you tend to reap what you sow. Congrats, and can't wait to see your next big find!

    NICE!

    Depressed silver prices, I think local payments are around 75c for 40% and $2 for 90%, so folks are just dumping.

    Yeah I don't understand most people's mentality of get rid of it when it's not really worth anything.... now is the time to stack it until prices go up.

    I agree with you there, I just hope I (we) don't have to wait another 30 years like last time.
