    Is there a certain bank that anyone would recommend to get boxes of halves at? Mine don't ever have many in their vaults (some none at all), so I usually end up with about 4 rolls per week.

    And about where do you live?

    Otherwise try Rapid Merchant Capital, in Sweet Grass, Montana (no guarantees).

    Lol. Banks don't regularly keep halves in stock. Halves are a PITA to banks. For that reason, they dump them to their Reserves the minute those armored trucks roll in once a week. That said, any bank can get you halves. Your job is to smooth-talk them into it. Are you beginning to get the idea, now? :)

    V. Kurt Bellman Yes, I'm blunt! Get over your "feeeeelings".

    What about those Chinese plants where they make fake ones, mangle them, and return them to the US Mint for replacements?

    If I were a banker (and be s-o-o-o-o-o-o glad I'm not), I would tell all CRHers to go take a flying leap.

    Nope, banks usually don’t carry those. I have asked tellers randomly when doing other errands and I always get the - no we don’t have those - One can buy dollar coin pieces and sometimes not even those

    I can walk into my credit union and get as many as I want though I've never asked for a box. They always have many in hand for their used for student games and promotions, etc.

    So it all depends upon where you are at and what are available. Though it seems more and more ppl are having problems getting and dumping them.

    It’s possible for any bank to get halfs. If you’re going to ask a bank to order them for you, I suggest having an account with them, and being nice.

    I can understand some of them but why all? Coin roll hunting is my only real ethical way of filling slots and books and it helps me cope with high anxiety.

    The answer is simple - that’s not what the banking system is there for.

    Fair enough.
