    3 more SOLID rolls, (with pics)

    I was working on the west side of Michigan, on my return to the Metro Detroit area. I stop in East Lansing to have lunch with Tanner (now a freshman a Michigan Sate) After lunch Tanner had to go to work, I stopped at 5 banks.

    Bank 1 $3 in teller tray halves SKUNK
    Bank 2 $10 one roll SKUNK
    Bank 3 no halves
    Bank 4 $20 two rolls SKUNK
    Bank 5 Teller 1 = 1 roll SKUNK, Teller 2 = $4.50 from tray. Skunk
    Manager said they had $480 in the vault. I bought $300. Out in my car the first roll opened was solid 40% The next couple of rolls had a sprinkling of halves. I went back in side and bought the last $180.
    In the first batch I found a about 5 more 40% halves sprinkled in the rolls and then a second solid roll of 40%.
    When I searched the last batch of $180 I found 14 more 40%. The very last roll opened was the third solid roll of 40%.
    Total 3 solid 40% rolls and 19 more 40% halves sprinkled in for a total of 79 40% halves.

    Keep on Searching,
    Dad and Tanner

    I sent Tanner a text soon after I added the find up. We have not been hitting it hard lately. I tend only to search on my way to and from work.
    We have not ordered a box in about 2 months. I really hit it hard about a weeks ago in Standish and Pinconning, Michigan. I hit every bank in those 2 towns. Most banks had halves. One bank had about $200 in nasty old rolls, that came out of a cardboard box, All the halves were in customer wrapped rolls. I ended up with just one 40% half. I have to work in Ishpeming, MI in the upper peninsula November 9th. I should be able to stop by the "Happy Bank" along the way plus another that will sell me bags right off the machine.
    All the best, Gordon and Tanner

    Gordon, you've been having some killer finds lately. How does 2019 stack up in terms of all-time productivity for you and Tanner?

    Productivity is way up over the last 4 years. These solid roll finds have been the first in the last 7 years. Solid rolls really jack up you numbers. Usually after a search you end up with one or two 40% if your lucky. We have never been really good a keep accurate year over year numbers. The past few year seemed to be so low, We just pitched a few years worth of finds into the same coffee can. It has been a nice run, I hope it continues.

    Keep on Searching,
    Dad and Tanner

    PS in 10 years of searching halves we have found just 1, 1970, and NO Barbers.
