I may try the grocery stores tommorow, i vowed to go through 100 rolls before I give this up.
I did manage to put together all 50 state coins and 4 of the 6 territories. Small victory
I would go after Eisenhower Dollars, they bring a small premium but worth it. They are hit and miss, but you can get em. I saw a guy on fleecebay, claiming the infamous estate story. He had a nice pile(pic of a couple-few thousand) the ad said 100 unsearched Ike Dollars, then wen't on to say their probably weren't any silver ones. It was up to $150 with time left! Someone suggested going to banks near the ghetto or low income areas, dunno. I think those half searchin days are over,10-20 years ago would be a different story.
