Little Amount Saturday

Today after doing my normal bank dump/pickup routine I went to Dunkin' Donuts to get Meg an ice coffee (that's also part of the routine). I learned why Meg had sometimes gotten lots of cream even though I thought I asked for the right thing. Before I asked for light cream, when I should been asking for a small amount of cream. Instead of a bit of cream they were giving her a ton of light cream (the standard practice for most of the workers). Lesson learned!

In my pickup was 1,000 small dollars, one box. They produced two mint set dollars (2002D, 2006D) and a UK 2 pence coin. The UK coin is the first one I've found in a roll. I needed it for my collection, it's a 1980, but next time I'd rather pay less!

I also searched six boxes of halves, 6,000 coins. They stunk! I only found one 40% half (1966). I did much better last week with my six boxes from the same source. I even think I might have come up negative this week in that I gave four silver coins and some clad ones to the teller for face. It was for her grandson's collection. I won't count it against my totals.

5,000 dimes yielded only one silver Rosie (1959).

Found: 1 penny (at Bank of America), 1 dime (at Shaw's)

Redeemed: $11.70
