    Got a bag of $500 in Ikes :)

    Actually after counting them, there were only 499, but since around half of them were UNC, I won't make a big deal of it. No silver in the bag though, but there was a 1776-1976-S Bicentennial proof in the bag that would probably grade PR40. Pretty rough and has been circulated, but can still see those proof mirrors.

    Went to the bank and got 500$ in halves, and 100$ in nickels. I also got a silver 1964 dime from the teller.

    Searched the box of halves last night:

    5x 40%ers. I forgot to note what years they were before I threw them into my silver box.

    1x 1987P
    1x 2004P
    1x 2005D
    19x 2001P according to my Redbook these weren't issued for circulation. Are these worth holding onto? All 19 of them, or should I just keep a few nice ones?

    I also got what I thought was silver at first.....It's a 1983P that has been dipped or plated in silver, or something silver ish. It also has the years 1960 and 1980 stamoed on each side of Kennedy. I'll try and get a quality picture of it and post it here.

    I, concur, WOW.

    That just about equals what I have found searching through nearly $10,000 in halves (13 Franklins, 5 Walkers).

    About $120 in silver for $10... not bad.

    I need a roll like that!

    Well, had a crappy coin collecting day today.

    I always buy rolled coin from my bank, and I cash it in at the Local casino. Well long story short, the casino has said that I cannot cash my coins there anymore because I don't have a "players card". I don't gamble, but we do spend money in the casino. I cash my check there every Friday, and we occasionally see a movie or go bowling there.

    So, now I have to find a new place to take all of my coins. I'd rather not take them back to the bank that I get them from. I was hoping I wouldn't have to roll it all back up.

    What do you guys all do with the coins after you've gone through them?

    I've never been to a casino that doesn't offer a FREE players club-type card. I'm sure you can get one for free...

    I wish it were that easy. They said theat they would need to see activity on my "Players card" in order for them to provide me the service.

    On a happier note, I went through 100$ in Nickels and found the following:

    1x 1940
    1x 1941
    1x 1941 D
    1x 1942 Woody
    1x 1942 S (silver)
    1x 1943 D (silver)
    1x 1945 S
    1x 1947
    1x 1948
    1x 1949
    1x 1952 Woody
    1X 1953 D Very Clean
    1x 1954
    1x 1955 D
    1x 1956
    5x 1958 D
    1x 1958 Woody
    3x 1959 D
    2x 1959

    A lot of 60-64. Anything newer than that, I just look for errors before I toss them into the bin.

    I did also come across a 1964D with some nice toning.

    Seemslike there has been some great finds lately. Franklins and Walkers......send some of that luck my way!

    REgarding the quote above.....what is a "woody" (I'm talking about coins here)

    1: I'm almost sure that halves were minted for circulation in 2001, they stopped in 2002.

    2: I have an Ike that looks like that, feel if it seems like it has a plastic cover, it may be some sort of lamination for jewelery purposes.

    3: Good finds on the nickels. I think th 45S is also silver.

    It is practically impossible to find any half dallers where I live! I checked every bank all the time but there is never anything.

    Found a bank with $320 in brinks rolled halves on Saturday: No keepers.

    Today I searched a box of halves: 9 40%ers.

    I had 5 in the first 5 rolls I opened, so I thought it was going to be a monster box. I'll still take it as 9 in one box is my best box in a while.

    Is there a certain chain of banks that carry halves? or is it just random?

    I would like to start searching. any tips?

    Just start going to banks and asking the tellers if they have any halves. If they don't have any they may offer to ask the other tellers. Sometimes they have them sometimes they don't. It's a bit of a numbers game in that you have to keep asking.
