    Cool ??? SEVEN BANKS & SCORE (22) !!!

    I was just trying to talk to my bank manager regarding my home-line-update, just pulling through the drive-thru covid-style, only to find she was at THE OTHER OTHER bank.
    To tell the whole story, this bank, and the OTHER bank are merging with the bank(s) I FREQUENT, so I don't even frequent these two banks...

    ANYWHO, as I put the truck in drive, I THOUGHT TO ASK THE QUESTION that must be asked!!!!

    Bank 1: I asked the drive thru teller "do you have any of those LARGE dollar coins?", making a big OH-KAY-SIGN, and she actually lamented that she had $53 worth and "Would you like them, they don't fit in my drawer", so I handed over 53 bucks.

    They were all bound up in a large folded and rubber banded envelope marked "$53-" and I was INTRIGUED. Sure, after exiting the drive-through, I peeked and that set me off on the chase....

    I felt like I was having a lucky day after sifting through the large brown envelope.

    Bank 2: After dealing with the manager I sought, I thought I should ask the teller up front about BOTH large-dollars AND half-dollars. She said, "I have 5 large dollar coins", and the teller had several halves.
    I paid for the large dollars straight away(CLAD), and asked to look at the halves.... She said, "Sure, though I have already looked them over", as is her habit apparently.

    Still, a dirty edged 1967 and I paid for that one, and showed her why and how I spotted it....

    Banks 3-7: A couple other banks had some half dollar rolls and some loosies, so I bought them. Three banks had nothing for me.

    I liked the look of the NEATLY wrapped (4), and not so much the sloppy rewrapped (9) another...

    The neatly wrapped (4) gave up 1965, 1966, and a 1967 Kennedy. (Those other 9 WERE skunks)...

    On my journey of collecting all these MANY little-rolled-up-treasure-hunts, I thought, HMMMMMM, "(Bank Number 1) that gave me all those NICE IKES, maybe they might just have some halves TOO?", so I "circled back" through, and asked the kind teller.

    She indicated she INDEED, she had (4) rolls, a total of $44. Again, the only "loosie" I got today was the dirty 1967 Kennedy from Bank 2...

    THESE FOUR MORE neatly wrapped little white rolls GLOWED in my mind...

    I think the COVID-RIOT has folks wrapping coins, converting coins to cash is all I can figure!

    It's too bad that so many PROOF SETS had to be broken & separated.

    Clad proofs can often be sold on Craigslist or at a coin show or even your LCS for a (small) profit.

    A word of advice - never ask to look through halves or large dollars. Always buy them all. Looking through them tips off the teller to what’s worth money; next time you won’t find any!

    Nice score on the silver Ike’s

    I gave a dozen or so to the tellers at my dump bank in December (along with chocolates). They got a boot out of them.

    When I set up at coin shows, I put these in a bowl and sell them for 75 cents each. Usually sell a roll or two.

    I used to use them to hold down the paper bills when leaving a tip at an outside table - where a breeze could blow away paper bills and an empty beer glass would leave them wet.

    I sold 285 of them last summer on ebay. After shipping and fees, got almost 0.70 each.

    So, you deleted the post where I suggested that OP spend them, but left the original offer to sell/trade (and, left at least one other post that quoted the original offer to sell/trade). What's the logic?

    I weigh my dime rolls, can tell very easy if over or short. One box was 12 coins short in 11 rolls. I'm doing this weighing step if I know I'm going to reroll.
