In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Aug 1, 2014

All because of a bum knee. 

Mr. Doe had been collecting coins for over half a century, and he found a good many silver coins in half-dollar coin rolls he bought from banks around his home in New Orleans.

But he gave up the hobby a few years ago, when the silver pretty much dried up.

A knee replacement operation left him rehabbing in his easy chair, and rather than just vegetate, he took up his old hobby of coin roll hunting again. 

And this show tells the story of his unbelievable find.

What a great find! I've tried my local banks here but I've always been told they don't have any half dollar rolls,only maybe, a few loose half's which they have already checked for silver ones. Bummer!
