Last night I did just a bit of searching.

I started out with a bunch of hand rolled quarters, 1,720. In them I found just two Canadians.

I next searched 400 dimes. They produced one Canadian. It's a 1968 50% silver one though, so that's not too bad.

After that I looked through 160 nickels. They turned up two US dimes (extra ones!), one Canadian, and one Somalia 10 Shilling. The Somalia coin is a first for me. It is extremely light, probably aluminum. In February 2007 it was worth .06¢. I'm pretty sure it's not worth a whole lot now either.

Lastly, I searched 700 pennies. In them was small Wheat hoard. In total I found twenty-six Wheats and two Canadians. The Wheats were:

1940, 1941, 1944(2), 1945(3), 1949, 1951, 1952, 1952D, 1953(2), 1956(2), 1956D, 1957, 1957D(8), 1958D

Found: 1 penny (at the Mobil Mart)
