Banking practice

The term "normal banking practice" refers to coins which are in a state in which they are bought or sold by banks. If a coin has already been bought by a bank or sold to a bank, it is considered to be customary in banking. Thus it is not a fixed degree of preservation, but coins in common use at banks are usually in at least "beautiful", rather "excellent" condition.
