    Nice Start to 2019 for halves

    got 4 boxes of halves, two different banks, 1st two were skunks. Loomis boxes.

    3rd box is a non-Loomis box first one I have had in a long time, I went to a different bank for boxes 3 and 4, they gave me a non-Loomis and a Loomis, When I call on Monday I will order 2-4 boxes and ask if they can ask for courier for any of the smaller square non-Loomis boxes OR WHETHER I should just take what they get me...
    Probably should just take what I can get this time and then if they are both the yellow Loomis boxes I will ask for the following week...

    ANYHOW - hit it pretty good in the non-Loomis box

    Nice start to the year Ben! Happy New Year! Those square boxes are the ones I get. (I don't ask for any particular style of box.) All but two of mine have been taped - but unlike your box, with only a single piece of 2" clear tape about 7-9" long to keep the box closed. I haven't seen one with as much tape as used on your box. Had the box been dropped and broken open, then taped like that to keep it together?

    So far, 3 of my 4 boxes in 2019 have been skunks, and the 4th produced one 1964 and two 40%. Just walking past coinstars is producing more for me!

    The manager at the bank apologized for dropping the box! Several of the rolls broke open, she taped them all back up.

    Since last February I have probably found about 10 halves in rectangular boxes, really poor

    That makes sense. The boxes are deceptively heavy. I hate to see the tellers struggle to carry two boxes at a time and usually offer to go into the vault myself for them. So far, they only chuckle and have not taken me up on the offer. I also offer to change the bags in the coin machine at my dump banks; the manager said she is considering having a key made for me...

    One bank lets me into the vault to get the boxes, it is an older head teller, the younger stronger ones bring them out. Interesting seeing the stacks of bills!
