    Another bag of halves

    I stopped by one of my banks to fill up the half dollar bag and then buy it from them. When the teller handed me the bag I could see a bright white rim staring at me. I haven't opened it yet so I'll let you know what the results are. The teller asks me if I want some two dollar bills and I say of course. I got my first red seal from a bank . And it's a star note. Not the best condition but I'll take it. Sweet.Click image for larger version.

    Wow I learned something today. I always thought that the star was always on the right side, guess I was wrong all these years.

    Modern replacement notes have the asterisk (star) following the SN. Early ones had it preceding the SN - like OP's.

    You are lucky you can buy bags! I have tried 15 different banks and they all say they are contracted by the armored car companies. 1 did sell me a bag of halves and dimes but not sure if they will do it again.

    This is where building relationships with the banks come in. I got that same response for years, but eventually I got several branches to sell them to me in a regular basis, even though other branches of the same bank would not.
