Half Dollar Box!

Coins | CheerioCoins

I just roll searched 1000 Half Dollars. Hoping to find a silver or Benjamin half dollar but didn't. Very sad but I still got some good stuff for my collection.I was surprised to find at least 40 bicentennial half dollars and kept a few. Also I found a green half dollar and called him "Yoda". I've never sorted half dollar rolls but I love how stubby they are. By the way Kennedy half silvers are years 1970 and before.
Anyway good luck to all the roll searchers and have a good day!

Kennedy halves were made in silver again starting in the 1990's however not for circulation.. You have to order them from the mint. Rolls and bags and there in the sets. By the way a perfect example what staples do to coins. They interact with the metals. Use the self adhesive.

My bank is unable to order them for me. I love roll hunting. Did you find anything weird? Good luck next time. Nice photos. Remember: Never Give Up!

That is a lot of half dollars. Roll searching is a lot of fun. I need to do more roll searching.

It is nice you searched half dollars. A little harder to obtain.

Yeah. I had to order them from the federal reserve so that took a while.

But at least your trying, kinda shows that even the 40% Kennedys are about extinct in circulation.

I see a few that weren't intended for circulation. Any proof coins find there way into those rolls?

Nice blog! Sorry to hear you didn't find any silver... I just hunted a half dollar box also, and I ended up with not silver just like you. Like the "Yoda" half dollar! Thanks!
