    Second best day ever...is this banner worthy for CRH?

    My day went from "good", to "great", to "too bad", to "OMG!" Second best day ever....

    I stopped at 3 banks today. The first bank had only two halves, but one was a 1964. I thought that was good. The next bank had a 1968-D Kennedy and a 1963 Franklin. Wow! That's great.

    My luck looked ever better at the third bank. I asked the teller for halves and as I asked I noticed she had about $15 worth in her tray. And the top 5 or 6 were clearly silver. So I said "Oh, I see you have some in your tray. I'll take all those." To which she replied "I'm saving the ones on top for someone else...he comes here all the time." "Too bad." I thought.

    Then things turned around. She told me I could have two of the silver ones and one was another Franklin. Any two Franklin day is a good day. At this point, the second teller said she had four ROLLS. I told her I would take all four. Hearing this, the first teller asked me "Do you want rolls? I have nine more rolls." Now that's more like it! I took all nine. Up pipes a third teller with three more rolls and I leave the bank with 15 rolls plus two silvers.

    I get to the car. The first roll says "All 1966." Now that's a good sign! I check it and sure enough, all 1966! The next roll, says "1964 Kennedy." More or less another good sign. And it checks out...all 1964! I won't bore you with the rest of the details but the first four rolls were almost all silver or part silver. The next nine were 15 or 16 in each roll except for one roll with only a single silver coin. The last three rolls were clearly different but still yielded 22 part silver halves.

    The totals:

    6 Franklins, several nearly Unc
    67 1964 Kennedy halves
    17 1965 Kennedy halves
    72 1966 Kennedy halves
    14 1967 Kennedy halves
    33 1968-D Kennedy halves
    33 1969-D Kennedy halves

    That's 73 90%ers and 169 40%ers = 242 silver coins in one day! 51.4 ounces!

    All but three from one bank!

    A monster box is 100 silvers in a box. This is almost 2.5 monster boxes in one day!

    Nice haul you got there but I think that 90 days might be the magic number

    Nice! 100 or more is a dream box, not monster. As for banner, we kinda frown on that.

    I mainly coin shoot, but I also enjoy relic hunting and shallow ocean hunting.

    I think he meant 1963 Franklin as he listed no Walkers in his grand total.

    Congraz! That is an awesome score!
