Those were fun days. One lady on my paper route would pay me with a nice shiney silver dollar.......... kept every one of those Morgan and Peace dollars. Finally sold about 3/4's of a set of Morgans and a full set of Peace dollars for a good price some years ago.
Yep, use to be able to go to the Safeway store and exhange a dollar for a Silver Dollar.
Then one day, I had to have that Schwinn 10 speed, and all those silver dollars were gone!
