Box 2 - 1956 Roosie
Man, I thought I was going to hit a $1500 skunk streak with dimes. Luckily that 56 stopped it...
When i started CRHing when i was 8 years old i asked the head teller if it was okay to buy coins even though i didnt have an account. shewas fine with it, as was the next head teller. today i went in there to get a strap of $1 bills. there was a new teller, who was probably not from the USA being that she had an accent and was reading a copy of the Constitution when i walked in. i asked for a strap of ones and handed her a Series 1981 $100 bill. she was a little confused by it and kept holding it up to the light so i explained that it was an older bill. she asked to see my debit card and ID. confused, i handed her my prepaid American Express and my permit. she asked me if i had an account, and i said no. she told me that she couldnt give change to people who didnt have accounts, so i asked to talk to Amy (the head teller). the teller told me that Amy had been transferred to a different bank and they had a new head teller, who just happens to be one of the tellers from the other branch who told me not to come back unless i had an account. so now I dont have anywhere to order boxes or bags of Ikes. I still have UMB where i can get CWR halves and First Federal (where i have an account) to dump coins, but both are pretty far from my house. on the bright side, i went to my dump bank (First Federal) and got 3 loose halves, one of which was a 1967.
If worse comes to worse, I've already asked my CU about ordering boxes through them. The branch I talked to said they'd order me as many cents, nickels, dimes, or quarters as I wanted as long as I gave them a week's notice. They don't order halves or Ike's, though.
This week's results:
$35 CWR Nickels- Skunked for silver, but found 19 pre-1960 coins: 38, 40 (x2), 41, 46, 46-D, 47, 48, 51, 52, 54-D, 55-D (x2), 56-D, 57, 57-D, 59-D (x3)
$150 CWR Dimes: 1961 (x2)
2 Dateless Buffalo Nickels
4 Silver Roosies
How's everyone been? Not sure if anyone is still around from my posts?
Results were pretty good. A couple had just turned in some old rolls the teller said.
20 nickel rolls
7 halves rolls
Came away with
15 40% kens!!!!!!!!!!
1 44 war nickel
and some misc pre 62 Jeffersons
can't believe I actually found one, been REAL tuff around here so I've almost quit. Hit 8 banks today and all I could scrounge was 19 rolls and some loose. A Wells Fargo whom I have no account with was kind enough to order me 2 boxes and wouldn't take my $ in advance...we'll see if they follow thru? It'll be my last hurrah (said that before...lmao)
In it were...
2 - Franklins
4 - 1964 Kens
13 - 40% Kens
Doesn't happen very often, but I'll take what I can get.

Don't they know I'm addicted?

That's great for one box! I went through $60 worth of dimes a while back and got skunkerooed. Congrats. What kind of shape is the Merc in?
its in decent shape, probably VF-30 or 35 with black toning
