My bank, formerly called a Savings and Loan Association, does not deal direct
with the Fed, but rather goes thru a large multi-site (multi-state) bank for
their vault needs.
I was in the bank, finally getting my 1999 IRA, when someone asked the "vault
teller" about Brass buck availability. She replied that the bank where they
get their money is limiting them to a single roll of Brass Bucks per week.
Although I am not an advocate of the Brass Buck, it does seem a tad
unreasonable to limit orders to a single roll per week. So being the insidious
type, I placed a standing order for the "roll per week" and will promptly
rathole the BB's as they come to me.
Given the lack of distribution of the Brass Buck locally, I may NEVER be freely
offered one in change so the Great Trinity River Toss may well be in limbo. I
do hope I am offered a coin before I get too old and feeble to make the throw.
