when I know ahead of time that I am going to a certain city for work or play I hit google search for coin shows and shops in the city. Also antique shops. Never know what can be found. I have also picked up some old casino chips from time to time, but those I either sell or trade for casino silver. With chips I almost always trade better for the other person as I would rather have a new something silver.
What can I say, I love our hobby and doing what I can to help others with their collections. Just not enough time is my problem. Work does get in my way quite often. But the same work does afford me the extra dollars to play.
So Jim, ya got anything you would like to trade for those missing strikes you really would like ?
