    Kennedy's and Ikes!

    While I was picking up my weekly 2 boxes yesterday, the teller next door asked if I would be interested in any BIG Dollar coins. I said sure, what ya got? She replied with "300". i promptly snatched them up. No silver, but the next to last roll was solid 1978-P, mostly AU.....putting that roll away for now.....might post on Ebay.

    The 2 boxes of halves produced 2 90's and 1 40. Of my last 12 Kens.....9 have been 90's......a great ratio!!

    300! That's a lot of Ikes. It's a shame you didn't find silver. Good luck unloading them.

    Sell all of them on eBay or Craigslist, not just that one.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Spend them. It's a hoot seeing ppl wig out getting them.
    I always tip the delivery drivers with 1 Ike and 2 clad Kens. They get so excited, they don't realize I only gave them $2.

    That's good! I would have gotten the evil stare if I brought in 15 rolls of Ikes.

    I was at a credit union once and the teller said she had $1200 in Ikes. So $300 is nothin!

    It was clear that somebody had ordered them to look for Ag, so I got a couple of hundred to sell on eBay for a modest profit, but I didn't want to really tie up any cash (or PayPal balance) on ikes.

    No one bit on my lot of 100 on CL. I ended up unloading them on ebay in lots of $50. Cleared $19 in profit after shipping and fees.
