From the bank

    Double Die I know just enough to be dangerous

    Went to my local branch of a major bank and after my transaction I asked the young lady behind the counter if they had any Ikes or halves I could buy from them. All she could produce were 3 half dollars and asked if I'd like to see them? I took them, looked them over, and gladly purchased them from her. The top 2 were a 71 & 74 Kennedy's, and on the bottom was a pleasant surprise... a 47 WLHD. She's showing her age, but I sure didn't expect this to be one of the coins. The 71 looks like it has railroad rim?

    Not a bad $1.50 spent.

    Nice teller find!! I am starting to always ask for large dollars, small dollar and half's. I have only gotten lucky once but got $20 in Ikes and $10 in half's and they had 1 silver in it so i consider that a great find! What's your rate of success?

    Unfortunately one of the other tellers at the bank knows to keep an eye out himself on anything silver. Only once before did I get a keeper (minor DDR) from an Ike. It won't keep me from trying still even though they don't get or keep a lot of Ike's or halves.
