Coin and Paper Money Collecting/1964 pointed tail dime - have a full roll unc

These pointed 9 dimes are like the Type B reverse Washington quarters. Dealers can't control them so they pretend the variety does not exist. Estimates on the 1964p vs d is 4 mil for the P and 40 Mil for the D. I feel that you need them to complete a full roll set for Roosevelt dimes.I have a BU roll of D,s on ebay and I think that an auction site is the was to go. In over 35+ years I have seen only 1 p roll and 3 d rolls. 125-150 for a d roll and 200-240 for a p roll. If you go on estimated mintage the p should be 400+. Best of luck
