    Talking Teller Score! Roll Score with Ender!

    So I went to the bank today to cash in $50 worth of pennies I had over the news year. The teller asked me how I wanted it, and I asked them if they had any half dollars, which is what I usually do. The woman said the next teller did, but not many, but she thought there were some in the vault. She asked me how many I wanted. I asked for what I could buy...$170.

    So she goes to the vault to get the rolls. While I am waiting, I notice the other teller opening the coin drawer a time or two, and I saw the halves. They had the real silver shine to them...not what you're used to seeing with regular change. Sensing a good thing, I asked him how many he had. He said he had $2 worth. I told him I'd buy them. I whipped out a fiver and when he got the coins, they had the sweet silver ring!

    I got the halves, got my change and waited for the rolls. I knew at least one was silver, so I went all poker face and just waited. Soon, I got the rolls, thanked them, and left.

    Once outside, I checked, the halves I bought from the teller...all $2 were silver! Two 1966, one 1967 and one 1969!

    I started checking the rolls...duds here and there, but more silver came our here and there, too! I couldn't believe it! The third to last roll was the icing on an already great silver run...it had a Walking Liberty ender!

    I finished the rolls up and couldn't believe my luck, with this final tally:

    –Walking Liberty–
    1 – 1945

    –Kennedy–
    2 – 1964-D
    1 – 1965
    3 – 1966
    1 – 1967
    2 – 1968-D
    2 – 1969-D

    I went back to buy more and I bought all I could, but there were no more. I am not much of a half dollar hunter, but once in a while I buy them, and times like this make it really fun.

    Thanks, folks!

    I have a question. I am pretty sure there's not a whole lot of numismatic value to the 1968 with pink nail polish/paint on it, so what would be a good thing to get it off? Nail polish remover? Alcohol?
