The bank teller replied, "I just got in some shiny ones!"

Was making a deposit the other day and always peak in the coin tray.

Asked the teller about some and she says, "I just got in some shiny ones!"

Who deposits proof coins?? I got a roll of Kennedy halves, $7 in quarters and 5 dimes. :D

    Nobody buys proofs to just deposit them in the bank....chances are someone somewhere is missing some coins....

    Me being a big gun guy. It is very important to teach gun safety to those in my household. Also teach my kids what to do when they might come across said guns. On the flip side, Me being a coin collector. I feel it is important to teach my household about what coins may float around the house. AND ALSO NOT TO SPEND THEM! haha cool find man!

    Earlier this week, someone pointed out that proof sets are virtually worthless, and you may as well spend them.

    Then us crazy collectors go and pull them out of circulation....because they're special!

    (I would have too....just saying, we can't make up our minds). :smiley:

    They would all have to grade P70Cam to make back the grading fees! :D

    I got some circulated $2 Bills with red seals some cashier dumped on me once. Why do I keep them? The things are worthless. Sometimes us junk collectors just can't help ourselves.

    Busted up some Proof sets from the early 1970s earlier this summer. To Coinstar!

    Great material for a blue book, type set, or such.
    Otherwise face value to my eyes.

    Yesterday I was talking to a teller in a small town branch of one of my banks that was saying about six months ago they had a bunch of $1 silver certificates, $2 Legal Tenders and silver halves coming in from a commercial, ie convenience store that got them over a period of about a month. At least the tellers knew what they were getting and bought them.

    it happens more often than you might think. I went through a friend's miscellaneous assortment of Kennedy halves and other things as a favor recently and found three circulated proofs -- a 2010-S clad Kennedy, a proof 1964 quarter (!) and a 1973-S quarter.

    Kind regards,

    George

    Got lucky once and the teller said she had some Ike's just come in if I wanted them. Purchase about 350$ worth. About half look like UNCs , not a mark on them. No silver:(
