You, my friend, have one amazing teller! I can't believe this post!

That was over my weekly 6 boxes. I've had a pretty good string of boxes though since I re-started searching halves. So far this year I am averaging over 10oz a month.
Managed to open and unwrap 3 of 4 cent boxes after work and before my son got off the bus. 2 GREAT finds. Needless to say, I'm excited to actually thoroughly search them. Hopefully some good stuff.
Fun stuff! What's the date on the IHC?
1905. Not the oldest I've found but my first IHC of the year.
My buddy carried one box, I carried the second, and dropped it (almost caught it), IN THE BANK.
Guess what [10 - 12] wayward rolls do when they escape the confines of the box!!! Think 'can of worms'
At least they are easier to pick up. I dropped 4boxes worth of loose dimes all over the sidewalk in front of the bank once.
Well, I was the only one in the bank at the time; no big deal.
But ... 1 'ender' so far here ('66 ; looks pretty good), out of 200 possible enders, (personally, would prefer 2 'middlers', to 1 'ender')
I have a teller who whenever I come tries to sell me the small dollar coins. She even tells me what they are (the president or sac. Or Susan b). Sweet lady. Tellers are under appreciated (besides from us coin collectors).
+1 on that.
Any chance you could tally up in a post Arby, of what you've got from your teller last few months?
Is there a Silver / Silver Clad '76 Half?
Yes, they made a proof and regular bicentennial half in 40% silver... why, think you've found one?
Don't know Jason; it looks like Silver, and has 'the ring' (sound), BUT the Copper layer shows in the reeding / edge. Pics shortly here - of LOTS of Silver; first box
(Wash. Album full yet? )
Box 1 done. Should call it 'roller coaster' 1 done - get this now; after about 14 rolls, I had 17 - 18 40%'ers, a '64, and a Frank. '51. (first non-Kennedy from a box). Chuckie's heart was PUMPING! Some are NICE too.
I was thinking at this rate, I'll have over 50 Silvers. But then the well went DRY. 4 or 5 Silvers next 10 rolls, and only 2 or 3 Silvers from last ~25 rolls ???????
VERY happy here, but just thinking how 1st box worked out this way.
The '76 is not a Silver Clad.
Now, PRAYING THAT THE 2ND BOX IS PACKED LIKE THE 1ST 15 ROLLS 1ST BOX!!!
Zero in the 2nd box. ZERO...
Some pics, tally (still wondering how about 18 Silvers (+'51 P) ended up in 1st 14 rolls, 1st box???):
I like the '72, ... and the '87 - I think NOT a bus. strike; whatcha' think on this?
and some of the rest
87 is NIFC.
Well, not much to speak of silver Weiss -a 1957 D Roosie and this filler, a 1941 S Walker. My favorite find in a while I think! Should I put it in a flip to keep it safe as it seems in a good shape for circulation?
It's definitely worn and has some dings and circulation. I'd prolly just put it in my Walker roll and call it a day. No harm no foul if you want to put it in a flip though
rest of rest:
first non-Kennedy ever from a box
'64 x 2
'66 x 2
'67 x 11
'68 D x 5
'69 D x 3
a few odd ones besides
