    Dare I say Dream

    Dumped my halves this past week at a branch I've never used before. When the bag filled, the teller was surprised, because in 18 months, bag 1 (halves) was never emptied. Can I buy the bag?. I had dumped approx $595 into it, so the remaining $405 gave me:
    3 Bens - 52D, 53D, and 59D
    7 x 64
    16 x 40%
    87D
    02D
    1 sac dollar
    2 quarters
    7 dimes
    6 pennies
    1 nickel
    and 3 tokens

    Box 1: 40% x 2
    Box 2: 40% x 1
    05 (D & P) x 15
    94S
    Loose: 40% x 1

    Yeah, the bag was short about $6 in halves. I figure $1.50 for the tokens, and $1 for a plastic coin holder (2 pc), The quarters and sac probably counted for 3 more halves. I'll take it anyday. I've never had 10 x 90% ever in one scoop, plus 16 x 40%. Well worth the $6.

    87 P and D were only issues for mint sets so their mintages are really low and they are quite hard to find in the wild. Something like 2mil of each I think?
