Lots of 90% & 40%. There was one spot that had four within a block. I asked a Korean buddy why I could always get a lot of halves from banks that had only Korean customers. They would tend to use even less than the average "white" bank customers. He said Koreans come over here and buy liquor stores in the ghettos then charge high prices. Most likely those halves were stolen and then spent on booze and cigs.
    Very interesting observations! I started asking at my pickup banks for loose halves and CWRs. I haven't gotten any CWRs yet, but did get a few loose halves. The head teller told me she "only gets half dollars from the liquor stores".

    I had 20 rolls of loomis halves, all 2017 BU. I cashed in at my local credit union. I put them on the counter and the teller said "what are these?"

    She is in the money business. Granted not a lot of halves around here but still she didn't know what they were.

    Thanks! The beginning of the the year for me, the silver usually trickles in. But it is a steady trickle.

    Historically, March and April are my best months.

    Spent the last two weeks taking the scenic route through Skunksville. Man, that was rough! And the views not so scenic.

    However, this weekend was good and delivered me from Skunksville.

    Picked up two boxes of halves + two boxes of dimes over the weekend, one box of each were skunks.

    The second box of dimes gave up three keepers, a Merc and two Roosies:

    1937 Merc
    1963
    1964

    The second box of halves gave up three 40%ers, and I also found a war nickel in the teller's tray when I was picking the box up:

    1967
    1968D
    1969D
    1943S

    Ugh, it is so skunky in my area!

    Picked up a box of halves yesterday, never seen this code before:

    Anyway, it gave up one 40%er: 1967.

    First silver in over two weeks, ending a 20-box skunk streak.

    Mastermind: that 4-digit code is the packers badge number that they use for quality inspections. This way they know who may have screwed up a box quantity. I asked a delivery driver years ago what that meant., but why 0000?, usually 4 numbers.

    Yeah, I meant that this was the first time seeing a 0000-coded flat box of halves. I usually see flat boxes of halves coded 6024, 6026, and 6037.

    6024's provide a steady trickle of silver.

    6026's are horrible most of the time, but then I'll get one really good box every once in a while.

    6037's are horrible, and at most give up a few 40%er every few of months.

    I also get cube-style boxes and non-coded flat boxes of halves from a few branches that give up a steady trickle of silver.
