    I LOVE TRUTH IN ADVERTISING

    Went to drop off a box at a bank that I have used ad a dump bank on and off for awhile. It's a little out of the way but sometimes I like to give my regular dump banks a break.
    It was a teller I have never seen before.
    After I exchanged 2 half boxes I ask if she has any half dollars.
    She pulls out this old ratty box and says there is $300.00 in it.
    She opened it and right away i see the shotgun roll that says FRANKLIN
    trying my hardest to not break out into my happy dance i tell her i will take them all.
    She says THANK YOU
    TWO SOLID SHOTGUN ROLLS OF 90%
    (40) Franklin's
    (40) 1964 Kennedy's
    Did my happy dance when i got to my car.
    Trust me not a pretty sight seeing a 63 year old man do a happy dance in a bank parking lot.

    Update
    1950d NOT 1950s
    (3) of them filled empty spots in my Franklin album.
    (4) coins replaced with better ones.
    From CRH all I need to fill the album is
    1953 & 1955

    I have a feeling you're the sort of guy who wins an abandoned storage unit in an auction and finds a sack full of gold coins and a Picasso....lol


    Congratulations!

    Someone turned in their dead relatives collection for face. You are very lucky. Make sure your family knows what they are worth. My kids know.

    I sorta understand when there are silver Kennedys in a teller tray.
    But, when rolls are marked like this or Franklin's, WL etc... in a teller tray.
    It just boggles the mind.
    I guess because we are coin collectors we see these differently.
    BUT, ITS BASICLY FREE MONEY
    This is what keeps us going even through the dead periods and the skunk boxes

    It's hard enough to find Solid Rolls
    But to find (2) solid 90% shotgun rolls
    WOW
