    Teller alerts collector about old coin dump

    Thankfully, that collector was me. I been buying bags that come off of the coin counting machine at this bank for years, so the teller let me know he noticed a lot old old coins after an elderly couple were finished with an unusually large deposit. When I stopped in he sold me 3 bags of cents and told me he'd notify me as soon as the other denominations got full. I have finished 2 of the 3 bags and got 3387 wheats, 196 of which were pre '40. There weren't any key dates but most of them had mint marks, which is good. I don't normally buy the quarter bags but I did this time when he let me know they had filled up. Results - 52 silvers. I day later the dimes filled up - 113 silver rosies. I'm still anxiously waiting for the nickels and halves to fill. he did say he could see silver in the bag of halves. Yes, I did get some nice goodies for their break room. When I finish the third bag of cents I expect another 1000 wheats. Another interesting thing about the cents, so far there has been at least 1000 au 69s's looking brand new. I'll be looking at them closer later, to be sure!

    I know what you mean. I've been slogging along like that for a while, just finding a single silver here and there. I try to remember the big stuff people post about here and hope mine is coming tomorrow.

    One heck of a score and it sounds like there will be more scores. Congrats! That is a really nice Teller that should be rewarded with some Doughnuts and maybe something collectible other than coins. You don't want the Teller to get into collecting coins and have them pull all the collection dump bags for themselves.

    I'd be inclined to give that teller something that she didn't have to share. Break room goodies are great if the entire staff helps you. When its one person's kind act, maybe a gift card to a local lunch/dinner place. Do you have a Panera in the area? Does she drink coffee? Maybe a starbucks gift card or a package of really good coffee? I like to learn a little about my tellers so I know what they like (and don't like).

    I remember reading either Outdoor Life or Field & Stream in the 60's-70's when they had a 1 page "This happened to me" with drawn illustrations. It was usually about animal attacks or falls down ravines, etc. This story is like a CRH version of that old "This Happened to Me" page.

    It is a good reason to check and make sure your Teller has your current phone number. If you've had an account for decades, they may have an old landline number for you. Get the teller's business card, check to see if the number on it is the number he or she would be using to call you (rather than just the bank's general number) and add that to your contacts. It would be a shame to miss out on something like this because they could not reach you. Imagine going to the bank and hearing "We tried to reach you, but..." and missing the score of a lifetime.

    Btw Friday was this tellers last day working at this branch. I know who is taking his position and am confident things will stay the same. I have everyone there trained to think of me when they think of coins.

    One of my branch tellers left for greener pastures this spring. I brought her a going-away gift and a thank-you card/note. I think it is important to show some human kindness even if the recipient will no longer be in a position to do us favors. Sadly, her replacement is doing me no favors at all - which shows that the reason branches of a single bank vary so much is because their tellers vary so much.
