    Half of a half bag

    2 years ago a credit union used to sell me half dollar bags stopped because they said Brinks took over maintenance of it and the Credit Union did not have a key to it anymore.
    Well, today the manager called me and said that they took over the coin machine again and that they had to do maintenance on the machine and took all the coins out.
    If I wanted what half dollars were in it I needed to come down today as they ship out coins on friday.
    $571.00 in halves.
    Then he told me that there will be no silver in it because the machine is calibrated to reject silver.
    I took it anyway.
    (17) silver halves
    (6) 40%
    (7) 1964
    (2) Bens
    (2) WL
    PLUS there was $572.50 in halves
    $19.00 quarter
    $1.30 dimes
    .25 Nickels
    .19 cents
    Lots of foreign coins including a
    1913 Commenwealth of Australia

    If it was calibrated to reject silver I wonder what it rejected? Ask the manager to turn off that feature.
    When I did yard sales I was dollardan. No yard sales where I am now.

    I don't think I'd call and have the manager change anything. Just keep doing what you're doing!
