A Henry Visit

Today Henry and Meg came to visit me at my office. It was nice to show him around to everyone. He handled it very well. The ride home was bit rough, but I think he just doesn't enjoy rides in cars much these days.

Between yesterday afternoon and today I searched a bunch of coin. 125 small dollars and 7,000 halves didn't produce anything. The halves were a major bummer. I don't have high hopes for the other 3 boxes. Hope bank #3 produces some better halves!

I also hunted 4,280 quarters. In these I found one silver Washington (1957D), three Canadians, one UK 10 pence, one Bahamas 25¢, and seven Princess Cruises tokens. The silver quarter was my 51st ever and the first I found in a roll in some time. It was strange to find yet another 1957D, my fifth. The tokens were all in the same roll. :(

In 2,200 dimes I found just four Canadians.

1,320 nickels yielded one War Time (1944P), five Canadians (2 Ni), and one US dime.

Lastly, 2,200 pennies turned up twelve Wheats, twenty-one Canadians, one Euro 2¢ (Ireland), one Norwegian 50 ore, and one US dime. One of the US pennies was stamped with a turkey. A Thanksgiving penny, perhaps? In the Canadians I found my first 2008 RCM. Hopefully I'll find a better one sometime soon. The 50 ore from Norway is a first for me.

The Wheats were:

1944(4), 1950, 1953D, 1956(2), 1956D, 1957, 1958, 1958D

Found: 4 pennies (2 at Autozone, 1 at Papa Gino's, 1 at Lowe's), 1 nickel (1 at Papa Gino's), 3 dimes (2 at Sovereign Bank, 1 at Costco)
