Dumb Me

Today I was a bit dumb. I picked up a bunch of hand rolled quarters, nickels and dimes at a local bank only to realize when driving away most of them were probably the same ones I dropped off two weeks ago. (This problem doesn't exist with boxes, that's one plus of them.) I was able to sort out which ones were mine though as it was obvious which wrappers had been reused.

In two rolls of quarters I found one Canadian I needed, a 2004 Acadie. And then in 720 nickels I found a nice 1945P War Time. The War Time nickel represents the last extra one I needed to finish a roll. It seems to be worth about $20 on EBay. At some point I'll sell it and some other rolls putting them towards some Dansco coin albums.

I'll be sure not to do that again. At least I got a variety I needed.
