    Within the last two weeks or so somebody asked for IKES (100 or 200). Does anybody remember who that was?

    Thanks!

    No, I just came into possession of them yesterday and remembered somebody asking for some and offering better than eBay. I could be misremembering. Maybe it was on Collector's Universe.

    Yes, someone said they were looking for Ikes. I came across 100 of them and was looking to offer them to the requester.

    Before covid I went to banks a lot. I've scored a few Ikes here and there. One time I was talking to a teller and saw that he had one Ike. I asked for it and he said he had 320 more and I got them all. Still haven't gotten around to lookin For varieties on those except the 72 type 2.

    I think the most I've gotten is about 240 in one purchase. I own a lot of them, so many I have no idea how many I own. I buy them whenever I can, got seven of them yesterday - first in awhile. But my big find yesterday was these:

    I was looking for some half dollars to search, and the bank teller and handed me 10 Ikes and apologized - "Sorry, this is all I have".

    I like to clean them up and hand them out to waiters and clerks who do a good job as a tip.
