    Been searching for 20 years and never found one. I don't search boxes though. I bought a 70-S some 10 years ago

    Been searching for four years and found one 1970-D. Old teller said I wouldn’t find any silver in those rolls!

    It seems like a good value to buy one of these, considering how few are being found in the wild by posters here.

    You can buy one for less than $10. I think the 70S costs less than the 70D.

    I just thought of this. I did get the 1976S silver proof half just last month there are about as many of these minted as the 70D and 70S combined, and alot of the unsold 76 coins were melted at the mint in 1982. So the 70 D and S are out there to be found. I have also gotten the 76S silver non proof two times (although many more of these minted vs the 1970 coins)

    Coincrazed: I think I know who you are referring to, right. I would think of the 70-S as a sleeping giant, we all know he's out there, but no one can find him.

    I've found about a dozen. I remember the first one, it came from a drive-up teller. Asked for halves and she said she had one and handed me a mint state 70-d. The others came in all the usual ways, boxes, tellers, customer rolls. Seems like about one a year so they are pretty darn rare.

    I've found 4 70d and 2 70s. You can crunch the numbers all you want but I think being in the right place at the right time is just as important.

    Bravo.

    I've found 6 1970 'S' and 4 'D'
    Also 5 each 1987 'P', 'D' and 'S'
    Of course, it took searching over a quarter million dollars in halves over the years. Wish I could afford to get back into it.
