Mother's Day

Yesterday was a good day for Henry. We first went out shopping for his mother. Although I don't believe in greetings cards, myself, I bought one for him. I think it'll be nice to keep them all. After that we went to his Auntie's apartment for a dinner. He was really good for it and the two rides. Today we'll see the other side of the family. Looks like a great day for some quality outdoor time.

I did some roll searching yesterday.

2,000 half dollars (two boxes) produced three 90% silver halves (3 x 1964) and seven 40% silver halves (1965, 2 x 1966, 3 x 1967, 1968D). That brought my average up a little bit and so I was pleased.

I also searched 5,000 dimes (two boxes). These were disappointing as in them I only found one silver dime (1960). The dimes haven't produced much since I found that dime hoard a few weeks back.

Lastly, I searched 10,000 pennies (four boxes). These weren't too bad. In them was fifty-nine Wheats, fifty-seven Canadians, one Bahama 1¢, one Ecuador 1 Centavo, and a nice clipped planchet. The clipped coin is my second of the week and the most clipped penny I've found. The Ecuador coin is a first for me. The Wheat breakdown was:

1919D, 1919S, 1930, 1936(2), 1937, 1938, 1939, 1940(3), 1941(3), 1941S, 1942(2), 1942D, 1944(6), 1945(3), 1948, 1948D, 1949, 1950(2), 1951(2), 1951D, 1952(3), 1952D, 1953D, 1953S, 1954D, 1955, 1956, 1956D(3), 1957(3), 1957D(3), 1958D(3)
