A Good Deal

Today I have to give a shout out for a bargain my sister and brother-in-law scored today. The family was supposed to spend today putting an outdoor swing set together. When they got to the store they were told it wasn't there like they said it'd be. To make up for the wasted trip the store offered to deliver and assembly it for free. The manual estimated it'd take 6-12 hours to assembly. Good deal.

This morning and evening I searched some small dollars and some halves.

Thirty-six small dollars didn't produce anything.

6,011 half dollars yielded nine 90% halves (9 x 1964), forty-four 40% halves (2 x 1965, 6 x 1966, 19 x 1967, 10 x 1968D, 7 x 1969D), one proof half (1976S), one mint set half (2007D), and a UK 50 pence piece. The UK coin is a first for me. It's worth about 99¢ and was definitely easy to pick out because of its shape. The boxes were about $8 short. One roll had 14 coins and another had 18. I only did half my normal load of halves this week because one of my tellers was on vacation. I'm pretty pleased with the results, however.
