500,000 Coins Searched

Last night and this morning I broke the half million mark. I've searched 500,000 coins. How crazy is that?

Last night I first searched 5,200 quarters (two boxes and some hand rolled). In the bunch I found ten Canadians and two Bermuda quarters. Three of the Canadians were ones I was looking for, 1999 November, 2000 Wisdom and 2000 Harmony.

After that and this morning I searched 13,350 dimes. In them six silver Rosies (1946 x 2, 1947, 1960D, 1961D, 1962D), twenty-one Canadians, two UK 5 pence pieces, two Aruba 10 dimes, one Ecuador 10 Centavos piece, and one US penny turned up. The penny was found in a bank roll. It was purposely cut down to dime size. There were no new varieties in the mix, but the 1947 was a big upgrade.

I've got a big mess of nickels and pennies to keep me busy this weekend.

Congratulations on the new baby! I'm not sure if I missed earlier mentions, but that was the first one that I can put my finger on. Hopefully you will have a healthy coin assistant in no time flat!
