Well my buddies place is in South Carolina so I didn't purchase the CC locally. But to me, there's only two places to consider. Louisiana Gold and Coin on Sherwood near airline and Baton Rouge Gold and Silver next to the Cove in Citiplace on Corporate.

Finally got around to sorting through some of the half dollars I had. I went through about half of them and I came out really happy. I was not expecting to find anything as my guy at the bank told me most of them had been picked through when I picked them up.
Nonetheless though, came away with two 1967 Kenned Halves, one 1968 Kennedy half, and one 1969 Kennedy Half. None of them are in great conidtion, but not poor either.
My big find was a 1951 Franklin Half dollar. Same as the Kennedys, not in great, not in poor.
A rough melt value of $27.00. I am now looking forward to going through the other half.
Purchased a 2013 ASE proof from the mint, should arrive Monday (expidited shipping) as well as 10 high quality toned Morgan's from my buddy in SC, those arrive tomorrow. I'll post pics of the Morgan's when they arrive. He sent me pics of them before sending but ill take better quality pics to post tomorrow. They're purty
