    My pick up bank is switching back to the single layer oblong boxes for half dollars. For about a year they were using the double decker square boxes. When they first started the double decker boxes I was getting loose foreign coins and tokens , about one in a box. Haven't got any loose ones lately, and won't get any with the single layer boxes. I'm not sure who the carrier is but I believe it's Brinks. Lastly I'm on a dry spell with all chunks.

    I hadn't either - but got one (in a Loomis box) thursday night. A 1969 and the only silver half in the box. I haven't seen a 90%er since November.

    I reduced my standing order at the bank where I get Brinks boxes from 2 to 1 box of halves and have gone over to the dark side - yes, quarters (1 box). And I have started a new standing order from a different bank that gets coins from Loomis. They limit me to 1 box per week, but I am happy to get it.

    If that is true he was a very good liar. We were just having a casual conversation. No need to make up a story. besides it was late in the evening, all bank had been closed for some time. I think he just picks up at stores.

    There are only about 4-5 banks in my county.

    We had some screwballs on here once claim that Loomis was stamping half dollar boxes with some variant of "contains no silver" messages. When asked for a pic, they uploaded a poorly done photoshop of a half box with digital text on the image. They had some idiotic idea that people would stop CRH'ing because of their lies and that would give them better odds. It's possible that this driver thinks that telling you this kind of story will make you stop getting boxes of halves and thereby make his route less coin-intensive. That level of infantile logic cracks me up.

    He's probably a CRH'er. They've been known to do stupid things and tell far fetched lies to try to further their hobby.

    Seems odd that he'd be touching any half boxes if he's just serving businesses ("...asked if he lugs around a lot of half dollar boxes and the answer was yes ... he just picks up at stores..."). I'd ignore everything this clown said. There's been some super finds reported lately from Loomis boxes. If anything, it seems like Loomis boxes are richer in silver than any other.

    It depends on your area. I know they don't pull silver, but in my area Loomis gets all the change from Coinstar. That means that all that silver that's rejected by the Coinstar machines doesn't make it into the boxes. I can tell when I get those boxes because they are 100% US clad. I get excited when I find a Canadian dime or quarter because I know it's not a box from a Coinstar machine and their might be (and usually is) silver in the box as well. I don't worry much about the nickels and cents because Coinstar seems to accept most of them.
    I found out about that from the Coinstar technician that I met one day at Wal-Mart. He was replacing the motor that turns the sorting drum inside the machine. He told me that Coinstar contracts with different coin carriers in different parts of the country and it happens that the Rochester, NY area is Loomis.
