A Good Start

This morning I had a good start to another week of coin roll hunting. In the reject bin of the coin counting machine and on the floor next to the machine I found four pennies, four dimes (one flattened one, one silver one, 1954), one quarter (silver, 1964D), one Canadian penny, and one Canadian dollar coin!

I'm also a bit sore this morning. Yesterday I spent most of the day painting. Meg and I are in the process of turning the TV room in the back of our house into a play room for Henry. It almost seems like we can't finish the project fast enough as he rolls and wiggles so well that danger is every present in the living room. This room should be very safe for him. The room will double as a guest bedroom.

Before lunch I searched some coin a co-worker brought in. He was going to bring it to a bank and I thought, I might as well just buy it from him and save him the trip. 200 dimes, 120 nickels, and 100 pennies didn't produce anything. Oh well. It would have been funny to find a War nickel or something in his little stash.

Found: 8 pennies (2 at Target, 2 at Home Depot, 4 at Sovereign Bank), 5 dimes (1 at Home Depot, 4 at Sovereign Bank), 1 quarter (at Sovereign Bank), 2 foreign coins (a Canadian penny and a Canadian dollar coin, both at Sovereign Bank)

Nice one on the machine find. I had a little pergola of coins turn up that I have to write up myself, but there was nothing to write home about in them.

Out of curiosity, and a question of morals... if you did find something valuable in your colleagues coins, would you tell them / share it / give it back? How well are you friends with them?

James ... good question. I'd keep it. It was a pretty good friend and he knows what I'm up. If I had found anything it probably wouldn't have been worth much more than $1.

OK, thanks.

I don't think I've got any "real true" friends at work... just aquaintences, so I'd do the same.
