A Little Piece of NH

Last night was a light night. I only searched some hand rolls.

I first looked through 1,440 hand rolled quarters. In them I found a Wyoming 2007P (one I needed), five Canadians, and a New Hampshire highway token (still worth 25¢, I think).

I then searched 2,900 hand rolled dimes. They produced one silver Rosie (1951), six Canadians and one UK 5 pence. I got two boxes from the bank, but they were all 2007P's so I didn't even bother to open them.

Lastly, I hunted 3,350 pennies. Sadly, this effort was mostly in vain. In the mix were three Wheats, thirty-one Canadians, one US dime, and one Euro 2¢. I had high hopes for the batch because 50 of the penny rolls came from one source. Such a large dump usually produces a high number of Wheats. Not this time, however.

I did a little exploring to figure out who was on the Euro 2¢ I found. It's Queen Beatrix, the current queen of the The Netherlands.

Found: 1 penny (Gulf)
