    First Box of Halves

    I ordered and received thru my bank my first box of coin rolls. I ordered a box of halves and here are some pics of what was inside:

    First pic is just my curiosity as to what decades have the most coins. Left to right, 1970, 1980, 1990, and then centennial coins separated. 1970's have by far the most coins.

    Second pic are some odd coins except for the 3 at the bottom which are 1965, and 2 1967's.

    Third pic is decade 2000, some of which are so shiny that they may be new releases. not sure how that works.

    Thx for any input as to what to look out for other than the normal silvers.

    Congrats that is a great box in today's world of CRH
    3 silver I would be thrilled with!
    All the other odd coins
    Welcome to the world of half dollars.
    I still have a box full of the half dollars with stickers on them.
    Good luck

    Thx Silveraddict! Were the stickers coins from the mint or someone else. Also, the 1974 and 1977 coins that are gold colored, an individual do that trying to be funny?

    An aftermarket group added the stickers, same with the gold plated coins.

    Not unless you personally like them, someone got suckered into paying a lot for those transfer covered coins, but they seemingly have no real value other than face.

    All the sticker coins I have came from boxes as did the gold plated coins.
    The sticker coins are all either military or political themed.
    When sold new they might have cost as much as $15-20.
    Now worth .50
