    I hear you. I go to about 6 branches in my roll searching process, and at one of them the tellers act like I am inconveniencing them. I have the same take as you, their job is to give my money, and I pay them for that privilege. I deal with it by generally avoiding the one branch and using the others, just not worth the hassle of dealing with it. But feel free to complain, it's there job to give you money and they should not act like it's a big deal.

    Beef, that's a beauty of a 1909 V.D.B. Nice find.

    Picked up 4 boxes of halves and plan on searching them this week.

    Weird Box

    Weird box today. I picked up a weird Brinks box today. It was sealed like normal. Opened it up and all the rolls looked normal. I noticed silver on the end of a roll so I opened it up. In order on the end: 1964, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1968. Then as I opened the other 49 rolls. Every roll was marked and every coin in each roll was marked. SO obviously someone had searched all the coins and re-rolled them in Brinks rolls and sealed the ends back like normal. I hate that but why would they put 6 silver halves back in a roll after doing all of that?

    Bob, found any like that?

    1957 Wheat

    Here's the wheat I found in rolls that weighs 3.3 grams and has some strange tone and markings on the reverse.

    4 boxes of halves yielded 1 40% and 2 64's. 130 in customer wrapped halves zero. When I opened the third box I opened the center roll first and to my fancy I found a 64. I imagined the treasure that might be in the rest of the box but that was it......o-well better then nothing.

    No, but hey, you got 6 nice coins which is above average for a box, especially with 2 90%ers, so smile and move on. :)

    You gotta think it was a mistake to put those 6 back if EVERY other coin was marked........I agree, very weird.

    I found this in a roll recently, would this 1963-D lincoln be considered a "Woodie"?

    I went to the bank today and got my normal box of pennies and nickles to search through for the weekend and scored a box of 2010 Shield pennies! YAY! Now to crack open that box of Nickles...

    Did some banking today. Needed coins for train parking. Anyway, asked the teller if she had any half dollars and she said she did, $60 worth. I took two rolls and left to go to the post office and dentist. Before going into the dentist I unrolled the coins and found I had 1 64 and about 15 65-70's. So after the dentist I booked it back to the bank and got the other rolls. The count for the 6 rolls: 1-64, 1-73S proof, and 78-65-70's. Not bad for a lark!
