Sorted $150 in halves...nothing. Got another $20 in halves...1 90% and 12-40%'s:) Also cherry picked a 1943P nickel from the lady in front of me at the coin counter at the dump bank for only 5 zincs:)

Thanks..

I snagged two $1000 bags today. I had to add $161 to one bag and $329 to the other bag. I captured $1010 in halves that I have not seen by using $1250 in CASH and $750 of my BU halves. The bags do not show SILVERs, but even if they are someones dumps, I've initiated the process at two local banks and will set it up at others as time permits. With some refinement, I'll begin to capture many of the SILVERs put into the bank branch's coin counters. If I find this method doesn't work, I might have to go out of my area and order halves.

Halves - $1000 Bag

1 Kennedy Clad NIFC - '05D
2 Canadian $2 coins - '96,'00 (missing two halves because of these - good swap)
Free loose change in the bag (27c) - '01 Vermont 25c, '01 Zincoln that is bent, and a '00 Zincoln

This bag looks like part of someones dump. The Canadian $2 coins sifted in there from someones loose coins.

Halves - $1000 Bag

SKUNK!!

One extra half in the bag.

Definitely this bag looks like part of someones dump.

Both bags contained circulated coins. However, both bags I grabbed were part of someones dump. No SILVERs were found using this method of topping off bags. I don't think there's many halves going into the counters by the public nearby me except the DUMPS I and others provide!! I talked to another bank (very rural location) I've used as a dump bank and was told the only halves they've seen were the halves (dumps) I brought to them to CASH in. Unfortunately, my local area is serviced by the Brink's bringing me the 1994-P BU halves, which has obviously run out of circulated halves, and Dunbar which my dump bank branches use, where I have dumped my discards for many many months.

Plan #2 - I'm going to try another small local bank to place a halves order.

Plan #3 - Order halves out of my local area far away from my local Brink's truck.
