Should say these were from my inlaws from at least 25 yrs ago, when they took the bus to gambling.
25 years ago puts them at the newest in there being 1995. That's not possible for the John Adams dollars at least they are newer, those are from 2007 and will be solid John Adams dollar coins that's the wrappers they used back then to distribute them to the banks for people wanting to collect them all, each wrapper had the president name on it and looks original so, I expect the rolls to be nothing but John Adams dollars. By John Adams the mostly fixed their missing edge lettering issue and their fix was "when in doubt edge letter it again" so there's quite a few with doubled edge lettering for John Adams dollar coins. No edge lettering is possible but less common, and you can have edge lettered but unstruck also.
There's some things to look for there.
A wrapper is a wrapper in my opinion, if you want to keep it, uncrimp an end and push out the coins and keep it as a shotgun tube. Maybe something interesting in there but even at 1995 it's not that old. If it was from the 1940s 1950s 1960s even there'd be a higher chance of wartime nickels or even buffalo nickels.
Anyways it's yours, it's up to you.
