    This started happening to me about 5 years ago. A teller that I was friends with was able to pin down the hunter that was doing it. She stopped ordering and taking in halves for him and told him why. Never saw a box like that again.

    Are they coming from the armored car company or does the bank have a stock of them? How many banks do you have in your area who will order halves or can you find a branch/bank some 10-20 miles away that may have different sources?

    When you take the coins back do you take the entire box and just deposit it or get cash, i.e. could you not only spray paint the ends of the rolls but the box as well?

    How many boxes have you gotten this way and do you have a coin counter you could dump them in to get them out of the current condition? I wonder if it is the people at the bank or a CRHer? I think I am trying to say I wonder if it is someone currently doing it and you would fighting against them or done in the past and they are just going through those boxes at the couriers and you will get through them?

    You may also take a break from halves to wait it out, but I would look for other banks to get coins from
    Yes, the box lids were re-taped and from external appearances, it looked like a normal box.

    I will ask if these came from another CRHer or if they came from the armored car. I got 7 boxes like this at two branches of my bank about 25 miles apart. I have been dumping them at six branches of my two different credit unions.

    I've never returned reject coins in boxes. I count and put my rejects in plastic jars that hold from $200 to $300 each and dump those jars into the coin machines at my credit unions. I take the torn paper rolls and the cardboard boxes to our recycling center on the way to the bank.

    I have the pics to show the teller today. One thing that has changed is the bank hired a new teller and these bad boxes coincide with her start. But that is only at one branch, and I am seeing this at two branches. I may open a box on the counter today and if the same, reject it, cancel my standing order and close my accounts there. This is the only bank that I have found willing to order halves. But I'm just wasting my time dumping someone else's rejects.

    I may point out to the teller that I handle my dump coins more ethically by taking them to coin machines rather than returning them to the pick-up bank where they would be a nuisance. This should be the golden rule of CRH but today, many people don't care about doing things the right way as long as it serves their own selfish interest and the hell with everyone else.

    Thanks Mark,
    Yes, I know there is at least another half dollar hunter using this bank. It is the only bank around that will order halves. I'm going to ask some questions today when I make my scheduled 2 box pick-up. I'm thinking about opening the boxes in the bank and showing the teller. I've done a lot of business with this bank but I don't want to come across as threatening. If it can't be resolved though, I will (politely) cancel my accounts there.

    Yes, definitely casino halves. Most of you said casinos stopped 50 cent machines about ten years ago. That would be 2008. For the next few boxes I will look at the dates and see if any are newer than that year. My theory is all coins without reeds will be about 2008 and older.

    Our t-net member Emmy lives in Las Vegas and he is also a CRHer he might be able to give a more informed answer.

    I guess I don’t understand what the bank can do, or why, if they have delivered the coin as promised, and the count is exactly right.

    You would be surprised how many people search and reroll after edge searching. They can miss silver.

    I use to date check ALL my dimes, but it was taking a toll on my eyes. However, when I get halves, I date check since the numbers are larger to see, and nothing gets overlooked. I've missed some dimes for sure, cuz some are tarnished like tea color. When in doubt rim checking, always pull it & check them.

    Wasting time. Never date search unless looking for errors. I could search and re roll one in less than ten seconds. I didn’t look for the silver, I looked for the copper band.

    Ive done that before at two different bank. Opened them on the spot after getting rewraps the week before, and in one case refused them because the previous week they were short. Made sure to tell the bank it was short, that I wasn’t trying to get reimbursed but that I wouldn’t accept rewraps again because of it. They took them back, no hard feelings, and the next week the boxes were pristine (and had silver). Sometimes you need to make a stand. If you reject them multiple weeks in a row you may have to stop ordering, for a while at least, but more likely is that after the first week of sending them back the bank will tell the courier company that rolls must be unopened - particularly if they’ve been short.
