    Always ask for bags

    Went to the bank to dump half dollars filled the bag, I was dumping $400 worth, while I was talking to the guy as he changed the bag I asked if they ever sell them, all other branches of that bank do not sell them he said yes they do but they have somebody who does coin roll hunting dimes and quarters and they would be normally nothing in the bed dimes and quarters cuz he dumps there however I don't think he does half dollars and they were $600 in halves in the bag I don't see any silver just looking at the bag when I get home I'll go through it even if I don't find anything at least they found another bank that will sell bags

    Went to get dimes at one of my pickup banks that gives bags, no dimes, so I settled for quarters, found 1 so far a real worn 1936

    Went through the halves, my $400 and the other $600. I think it was a dump, BUT I did find one 40% a 1968D so not a skunk

    Glad you got one at least. Never hunted quarters, but might consider it in the future.

    I don't like quarters, have never done well. This year I have found 5, yup 5, but that is 1 more than my lifetime total of quarters.

    I think that people notice silver quarters and cull them. Halves are the best bet.

    I think this bag of halves was someones dump (of course 400 of it was mine) but just shows either they missed the 40% or someone else put some coins in it.

    Ben I agree, Halves are the best bet.
