    Best find in several years

    I go to Washington state about once a year to visit family. I always bake in a half day or so to hunt some coins. There’s a particular bank I stop at that ALWAYS has silver, like $20 shotgun rolls that are solid silver and have the word ‘silver’ written on them. It’s a good bank to say the least. So I stop by this morning ask for halves and am told “we gave them all to a guy yesterday”. $&@#! The teller then says “I have 2 if you want them”. Of course I say yes and there’s clearly a 40%er in there. I thank her and ask if she’ll see if the other tellers have any left. No problem. The far teller says he has 3 and the middle teller who's Helping another customer says he has 2.

    I can hear that 1 of the 3 at the far teller is a silver. When the middle says she had 2 the customer she’s helpin says “I was going to buy those”. My teller looks at me ackward and I say “not a problem” and she gives the 2 back to the middle teller. Meanwhile the far teller keeps checking his 3 coins with a funny look. I’m thinking the guy yesterday took the bulk of the score, the other customer sniped 2 halves from me and this far teller is going to undercut me too. Awesome. Eventually my teller returns with the 3 halves from the far teller do whatever he was looking at he left in there.

    I throw them them in my pocket and walk out. When I get to the parking lot this is what is staring back at me.



    Found the commemorative, 2 64-D’s and 6 40%ers.

    Twitch, crazy story man! That coin has so much detail left in it. Must have only had a few owners.

    Looks like $12-14 on ebay's recent sold items; although I would probably just keep it for my personal collection.

    Couple interesting notes:
    today’s hunt took me over 500oz silver total for my CRH career. Not bad for a 2 box a week hunter.
    This is my 4th oldest dates CRH find (1830 bust half, 1874 Indian head penny, 1890 V nickel and narrowly misses an 1895 Barber half).
    my 2nd classic commem (also have a 1925 Stone Mountain) and 4th overall 90% commem.

    Thanks. I'm pretty fortune that I have an under-hunted stretch to search. Either that or it just has a ridiculous amount of silver flowing through it. I know next time I'm heading out I'm going to call the bank 3-4 weeks ahead of the trip and see if they'll save the halves and large dollars for a couple of weeks for me. If it works it should be a gold mine. Or a silver mine.
