CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- Coin collectors around the country would like to have the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan and Harry Truman in their pockets.
The civil rights leader and two former presidents were the top vote-getters in a national survey asking collectors whom they would like to see depicted on coins.
The collectors' suggestions ranged from Jesus Christ to the Three Stooges and included 33 presidents as well as astronauts, actresses, artists, baseball players, pioneers and a king -- Elvis Presley.
"We're hoping if we can get enough exposure, we might start a groundswell for some revisions to our pocket change," said David Sundman, president of Littleton Coin Co. of Littleton, N.H., which conducted the survey.
