Eagle Eye

Yesterday started out pretty good. While dumping a big mess of hand rolled coin at the Bank of America I spotted some silver halves in the teller's tray. He had twelve of them. I bought them all. In them were four silver ones (1964 x 2, 1968D x 2). Two 90% and two 40%, not bad!

When I got home I went through 5,480 quarters (two boxes and some hand rolled). I was feeling lucky after this Saturday, no luck though ... I only found eight Canadians, no new varieties.

I also went through 2,850 dimes (two boxes I got at the bank were all 2007P's!). The hand rolled dimes produced. In them were four silver Rosies (1963, 1963D, 1964D x 2) and nine Canadians.

Lastly, I began working on the pennies. So far in 9,000 I've found forty-seven Wheats, 113 Canadians, two US dimes, one Euro 5¢, and one Bermuda 1¢. One of the Wheats is one I needed, a pretty nice 1913!

I've got one more box of pennies to go through at home and about 5,000 nickels.

Found: 1 penny (Bank of America, a 1944 Wheat)
