, SLQs, and V nickels
were heavily used for years. These series are known for most of them being in worn condition. That is why coins form these series that are in good condition are higher priced.
As to finding some of the others you mention such as WLHs, if you have a local coin shop, ask them if you can sort through and buy from their junk silver. Junk silver does not mean physically damaged as the term refers to common dates worth only melt value. You could likely pick up some WLHs this way.
Just for fun I once asked if I could swap a roll of 90% Kennedy halves
for a roll of 1942 WLHs the owner had in the melt pile. He said they were both melt anyway so we did it.
You will pay somewhat of a premium above melt value, obviously the shop owner has to make something to keep the business going. So make sure you know what silver coins spot price is when you go. A good way is by using google to find a silver melt calculator.
