600,000+ Pennies Searched!

Last night I broke the 600,000 penny mark. One of these days I'll get to a million. I'll have to celebrate that day somehow.

I searched 440 hand rolled quarters and 100 hand rolled dimes, but only found one Canadian quarter.

I next looked through 10,000 pennies (four boxes). They produced fifty-six Wheats, fifty-seven Canadians, and one Barbados 1¢. In the pennies I came across one stamped with an outline of Maryland. The Wheat varieties were:

1919, 1928, 1934, 1940(2), 1941(2), 1942, 1944(2), 1944D(2), 1945, 1946(2), 1947, 1948S, 1949D, 1950(2), 1950S, 1951(2), 1951D, 1952(2), 1953, 1953D, 1953S(2), 1954D(2), 1955(2), 1955D, 1956(5), 1956D(2), 1957, 1957D(6), 1958(3), 1958D(4)

Lastly, I hunted 2,000 nickels (one box). In it was one War Time (1943P) and two Canadians.

Found: 2 pennies (at the Tiger Mart), one nickel (at Sovereign Bank), one quarter (at Sovereign Bank)
