New House

Well, today while waiting to close on our house my wife was patient with me and let me dump coins at one bank and search three. Some of the tellers were friendly today, others not so much.

While dumping at the first bank I peeked over the counter and saw some silver halves in the tray. I bought all of her halves, 25 of them. At the next bank I also saw some halves and bought seven more. In the thirty-two I found 11 40% silver ones (2 x 1966, 4 x 1967, 5 x 1968D). The second teller even said, "there's some strange ones in there, some silver ones." I was hoping for some non-Kennedy halves, but oh well. At the same bank another teller heard what I was up to and volunteered that they had 340 in the vault. I took those two. I found six more 40% silver halves in them (5 x 1967, 1969D).

I also scrounged up 520 quarters. I didn't find anything of note in them except one US dime. In 550 dimes I found one silver dime (1959D) and one Canadian. Then in 200 nickels I found two Canadians.

I also got a hold of a whole bunch of pennies, 2550. In them I found 14 Wheats, 23 Canadians and 1 US dime. No new varieties though.

At our new house I found one penny and one Euro 10 cent.

Found: 1 penny (at the new house), 1 foreign coin (at the new house)
