More Showers

Today we had yet more showers. This is crazy. It feels like it has been raining for the past two weeks. Every day starts out fine, some excellent ones have been in there too, but in the afternoon or evening it always seems to thunder and rain. Because of it Meg and I didn't get to take Henry out for our evening walk ... bummer ... that's the part of the day I look forward to most.

My coin searching went OK.

8,000 halves (eight boxes) yielded five 90% silver halves (4 x 1964, 2003S-Silver), eight 40% silver halves (1967, 4 x 1968D, 3 x 1969) and one proof (2003S-Silver). The silver proof is a new one for me. It was great to find.

1,800 quarters produced just two Canadians. One of them, however, was one I needed, the 2003P Royal Diademed. It's one of the rarer modern Canadian quarters.

I also searched 5,200 dimes (two boxes and some hand rolled). They turned up two silver Rosies (1952, 1964D).

360 nickels didn't produce anything.

Lastly, 1,750 pennies yielded five Wheats, thirteen Canadians, and four US dimes. The Wheats were:

1944, 1945, 1945D, 1956, 1956D

Found: 3 pennies (1 outside the AAA office, 1 in Burger King, 1 at the Bank of America)
