300,000+ Dimes Searched!

Yesterday I tried something new. I skipped nickels, for the most part, and doubled up on the quarters. I tried to a will a silver quarter. It didn't work. Oh well, better luck next time! Sometimes even four boxes of dimes doesn't produce.

I searched 8,200 quarters. In them I found fifteen Canadians, one US penny, one UK 10 pence, one French franc, and one Bermuda 25¢.

I also looked through 5,250 dimes. This bunch put me past the 300,000 mark for the year! It was a good bunch. It produced five silver dimes (1941, 1946, 1954D, 1959, 1962D), five Canadians, and one East Caribbean States 10¢. The Mercuy I found is a nice upgrade.

After that I went through 360 hand rolled nickels in which I got one Canadian. It was one I needed, 1971.

Finally I searched 800 hand rolled pennies. In them was four Wheats, four Canadians, and two dimes.
