    4 Franklins from Teller Tray

    Went to the ATM today to get some grocery money, usually just drive past the teller but this time decided to ask for halves or large dollars. They said one of the tellers had some halves but he wouldn't be in for another hour. I called back before heading over, talked to the teller he said he had 4 halves, a 1950D 1961D 1962 and 1963! they claimed there were worth about $40, I said I would be right over. On the way there I bought 2 boxes of munchkins and when I got there I gave them the munchkins and got the halves for $2. I showed them on the phone app how the melt value of well circulated halves is currently $5.75, they said they must have looked them up wrong. They knew the value of silver but evidently this bank won't let them buy the coins from the tray.
    OR maybe they were hoping I would offer more for them? They said they would hold any that come if for me. It was an older lady who brought them in. She also brought in 10 rolls of Quarters but they were all 2002 Mississippi's in bank rolls and a couple that said "new quarters"

    I had a (much) less successful, but similar experience this week.

    I picked up this week's half dollar box and asked my teller if she had any other halves, loose or rolled. Another teller said she had two. I gave her a dollar and received a 1967 and 1969D.

    So, I figure that I'm 2 for 2 this week. Final tally : 2 for 1,002.

    Last three boxes have coughed up exactly one 40% silver half.

    Like you, it has really been feast or famine for me this year. Mostly famine.

    My 2019 tally after 8 boxes and 51 loose halves : 6 90% and 19 40%; however, 4 90% and 7 40% came in one box. 3 skunks out of 8.

    Nice finds Ben!

    As a former Mass resident, I'm happy to translate for non New Englanders for regional terms like "munchkins". Incredible as it seems, there are really places with no Dunkin Donuts; we are supposed to get our first one in the county sometime soon and the locals will then know what munchkins are.

    Congrats again!

    Some years ago we went to Gettysburg on vacation and asked where the nearest DD was, they had no idea what I was talking about! How do they survive?

    LOL. I'm willing to bet that your area has more DDs per square mile than anywhere else in the country. We had some in Taunton, but my wife is from Quincy and that area is loaded with them. How is it possible to stay in any kind of shape with all those donut shops? I used to work with an engineer from India and it was his dream to open a Dunkin Donuts.
