A Million Pennies, A Million Miles

For the past few days I have been in California on a business trip, a developer conference. So far the conference has been OK, but being away from Meg and Henry has been more difficult than I imagined. I feel so far. Tonight I even had a pretty tough time eating dinner at a restaurant because I was seated next to two small boys. I feel like I'm missing something. I definitely can't wait to get back. I'm really looking forward to Halloween.

Before I left and I did some coin roll hunting. I didn't find too much for my efforts.

I searched 6,600 quarters and found just five Canadians.

600 dimes didn't yield anything.

240 nickels turned up four Canadians (1 Ni).

I also searched a big batch of pennies. 5,100 of them produced seventeen Wheats and three Canadians. The Wheats were:

1939, 1940, 1941(2), 1945, 1946, 1948, 1950, 1950D, 1952D, 1953D, 1955(2), 1956(2), 1957, 1957D

While here I've tried to go absolutely crazy on pennies. I've used my non-conference time as best I can to accumulate, sort, and dispose of pennies. Along the way I've picked up some other stuff as well.

I rounded up seven large dollars and one hundred fifty-two half dollars. In them I found only two 40% silver halves (1967, 1969D). Oh well, that's better than nothing and it wasn't much of an extra effort.

I also searched 450 dimes, but they didn't produce anything. I got a 2008D dime in change.

At various banks I asked for presidential dollars and state quarters I didn't have. I know I could find these eventually at home, but it seemed a bit easier just to ask for them here. I got three state quarters, New Mexico 2008D, Arizona 2008D and Alaska 2008D. I also got three presidential dollars Monroe 2008D, John Quincy Adams 2008D and Andrew Jackson 2008D.

And lastly I searched a tremendous amount of pennies. My efforts almost triple my previous West Coast penny binges. I guess I've just gotten better and faster. In total I've searched 44,950 pennies! I would have searched more of them if I could as my chances of finding new ones here are just so much greater, but I can't do any more. With these pennies I have surpassed my 2008 goal of a million pennies searched! In them I found one hundred forty-three Wheats, forty Canadians, thirteen US dimes, one Netherlands 1¢, one Hong Kong 1¢, one Bahamas 1¢, one German 2 Pfennig, one UK penny, one Euro 2¢, one Philippines 25¢ and one Philippines 5¢. The Wheats included three I needed, 1925S, 1936S, 1939D! It felt great to find those new ones, especially the two from the 30's as it has been a while since I've found new ones from that decade. Finding a bunch of new foreign coins was a great bonus as well. The complete Wheat breakdown is:

1917, 1919, 1925S, 1930, 1935D, 1936(3), 1936S, 1938, 1939D, 1940(2), 1940S, 1941, 1942(4), 1942D, 1942S, 1944(5), 1944D(3), 1944S(5), 1945(3), 1945S(3), 1946(5), 1946D(3), 1946S(5), 1947D(2), 1947S(2), 1948D(3), 1948S(3), 1949, 1949D, 1949S(3), 1950, 1950D(2), 1951D(5), 1951S(4), 1952, 1952D(2), 1952S(3), 1953, 1953D(4), 1953S(3), 1954D(3), 1954S, 1955(3), 1955D(11), 1956(3), 1956D(16), 1957, 1957D(9), 1958, 1958D(21)

To top things off today I found the first bill, a one dollar bill, since January. Last time I was here I found one too.

Found: 2 dime (1 at Logan Airport, 1 at Wells Fargo), 1 quarter (at Logan Airport), 1 $1 bill (at WaMu)

Yesterday Meg, Henry and I went to a nearby farm. We went to get a pumpkin and some pumpkin pictures. The place also had a ton of goats in a caged petting area and a neat playground so we hung out in those places as well. Later in the day I took Henry over to a friend's house and he had a good time playing with other kids' toys. Lately, I've been proud to see just how well he plays with other kids. He even handles himself pretty well when amongst older kids.

I searched twenty-nine large dollars at the bank this morning, but didn't find anything.

Here are some other recent pictures of Henry I like.

Above is a good example of his smile as of late. He doesn't make much noise, but likes to show this expression when he's having a good time.

Now we have to make sure he doesn't rip up books! Perhaps he's interested in some of his Dad's history books?

Found: 1 penny (at Sovereign Bank), 1 nickel (at Sovereign Bank)

Saturday, October 25, 2008


Tonight we had a great family dinner. Meg made a beef stew dinner and we had my parents, sister, brother-in-law and nephews over. The boys all behaved well and and played together nicely. I had a particularly good time with my two nephews. There were some good moments there that'll I remember. I especially liked sharing a book about the Hindenburg with my older nephew (who told me 64 people were killed by the explosion, his number was off, but his curiosity was the important thing) and hearing my younger nephew use even more words than the last time we saw him. Henry handled everything very well.

I did a lot of coin searching last night and today during nap times.

67 small dollars didn't turn up anything.

The half dollars I searched continued my lucky streak. Hope things keep going. 8,0001 half dollars yielded eleven 90% silver halves (1952, 1953D, 9 x 1964), one hundred fifty-three 40% silver halves (10 x 1965, 22 x 1966, 49 x 1967, 35 1968D, 38 x 1969D, 1970S), twelve proofs (1970S, 1976S, 1978S, 1981S, 1983S, 1988S, 1992S, 1993S, 1994S, 2005S, 2006S), twenty-four mint set halves (2 x 2004P, 7 x 2004D, 2005P, 4 x 2006P, 8 x 2006D, 2007P, 2007D) and one Dominican Republic ½ Peso. In one box I found eight 90's, one hundred forty 40's and one proof. That was one awesome box! It feels good to have found so many proofs I needed, especially the 1970S. Less than 3 million of those were minted and it is only the second 40% silver proof I have found. The Dominican Republic coin was a first for me. It is worth 1.4¢.

I searched 160 quarters, too, but only came up with one Canadian.

I had better luck with the dimes. 3,700 of them produced two silver Rosies (1946, 1947), seven Canadians, one US penny, one Bermuda 10¢, one Belgian 1 franc (worth .0025€), one Israeli 1 New Shekel (worth 26.5¢), one Panama 10¢ and one Russian 10 Kopek (worth .3¢). That batch produced three foreign coins I had not found before, the Belgian, the Israeli and the Russian coins. The Russian coin is a good one for me, too, as it is the first coin I've found from that country.

I also did well with the nickels I searched. I went through 2,800 of them and found two War Times (1943P, 1945P), eight Canadians (4 Ni), three US dimes and two US pennies. The 1945P silver nickel is a great one. It has a double clipped planchette! I'll scan a pic of it soon.

Lastly, the pennies were OK. I looked through 3,600 pennies and turned up thirteen Wheats and twenty-four Canadians. The Wheats were:

1909, 1938, 1940, 1944, 1946, 1947, 1951, 1952, 1953D, 1954S, 1957D(2), 1958

Found: 2 pennies (1 at Sovereign Bank, 1 at Bank of America)

Moms' Night

Last night Meg finally got a chance to go out in the evening with her mom friends. I think they had a good time. Henry and I survived quite well on our own. We only had thirty minutes together, however, as he went to bed pretty soon after Meg left.

In Meg's absence I searched some coin and it went much better than the previous two nights.

123 small dollars and eight half dollars produced two 40% silver halves (2 x 1968D).

I also searched 960 quarters and found one silver Washington (1958D), four Canadians, one US nickel, one UK 10 pence, one French 10 Franc (worth €1.52*), two French 20 centimes (worth €.03*) and one Japanese 10 Yen (worth 10¢). Most of the foreign coins were all in one roll. It was great to get one new silver quarter and all of those odd foreign coins. The Japanese coin is the first coin I've found from that country in a roll.

I did pretty well with the dimes too. 2,150 dimes yielded three silver Rosies (1951, 1962D, 1963D), three Canadians, one Bermuda 10¢, one Italian 100 Lire (worth €.05*) and one Spanish 5 Ptas (worth €.03*).

In 680 nickels I found one War Time nickel (1943P).

I also searched 2,450 pennies and in them found twelve Wheats and twenty-six Canadians. The Wheats were:

19XX, 1928, 1940(2), 1945, 1946D, 1948, 1950, 1953D, 1955D, 1958, 1958D

* Most pre-Euro coins can no longer be exchanged for Euros.

Duck For Dinner

Tonight after a special anniversary dinner of duck, rice and brussel sprouts I searched some coin. The meal was great, the coins, not so hot.

160 quarters, 100 dimes, and 40 nickels turned up one Canadian quarter and four Canadian dimes.

I also searched 4,300 pennies and found fourteen Wheats, forty-six Canadians and one Bermuda 1¢. I found my twelfh Steelie in a roll. The Wheats were:

19XX, 1918, 1938, 1941, 1943, 1944, 1946, 1952, 1952D, 1953D, 1955, 1956D, 1957(2).

Found: 1 quarter (at work)


Today is our 2nd anniversary! It's been a quick two years with lots happening. This year we're celebrating. We meant to last year, but before we knew it too much time passed ... and that's when we didn't have Henry! What were we thinking? This week his grandparents will be out to visit with us, go to a conference and watch him for a bit while we go out to dinner.

Recently I've noticed how attached Henry has gotten to me (and Meg!). When I get home he is very excited to see me and if I have to go to the bathroom right after seeing him he can hardly stand it. I also find evidence of his affection in how he looks for reassurance to Meg and I when meeting with people he doesn't know too well. It's a good feeling.

I searched some coin last night, but it was only so-so, except for two new foreign coins.

One small dollar and 680 quarters didn't produce anything.

6,050 dimes turned up just one silver Rosie (1958D), twenty Canadians, one UK 5 pence, one Bermuda 10¢, one Swiss ½ franc and one Domincan Republic 10 Centavos. The DR coin is a new one for me. It is worth .2¢. I was hoping to find more silver dimes in that batch. Normally a batch of that size would produce at least two or three silvers.

2,640 nickels yielded one Buffalo (1918), nine Canadians (2 Ni), one US dime and one German 10 Pfennig. The Buffalo nickel has its date worn off, but Nic-A-Date showed it to be a 1918. Ther German coin is a new one for me.

Tonight I'll search the pennies I rounded up.

Found: 1 penny (at Steve & Barry's), 1 token (an arcade token at Sovereign Bank)

Saturday, October 18, 2008


This weekend's coin pickup was pretty good.

800 small dollars produced a mint set dollar (2003P).

8,058 half dollars yielded twenty-seven 90% silver halves (19??D, 2 x 1941, 2 x 1941S, 1942, 1947, 1948, 1950D, 1952, 2 x 1952D, 1953S, 3 x 1954D, 1958, 2 x 1958D, 2 x 1960D, 2 x 1963D, 4 x 1964), twenty-three 40% silver halves (2 x 1965, 3 x 1966, 4 x 1967, 9 x 1968D, 5 x 1969D), two proof halves (1980S, 1982S), five mint set halves (1987D, 2 x 2003D, 2004P, 2004D), one commemorative (1986S Statue of Liberty), a Bermuda 50¢, and a Kenya 5 Shilling (worth 65¢). One of the clad halves had a sticker on the back for Aunt Chilada's Easy Street Cafe, a Mexican restaurant in South Carolina. Most of the good coins came from one box and one bank stop. At one bank I asked for the teller if she had any loose halves. She gave me twenty-one coins. In them was sixteen 40% silver halves, one dateless Walker (probably a 1935D, but I'll put it in my "for jewelry pile") and a Bermuda 50¢. Not a bad score at all and that's the first Walker and foreign half I've gotten from a teller's tray. I was also glad to get two Franklins I needed, a new foreign coin and my fifth commemorative!

I also searched dimes, but 2,950 of them only turned up seven Canadians and two UK 5 pence pieces.

4,400 pennies were good. I them I found fifty-eight Wheats, forty-two Canadians, one Euro 2¢(Greece), one Euro 10¢(France), one UK penny and three US dimes. The Wheats were:

1912, 1918, 1919, 1926, 1940, 1941(5), 1942, 1943, 1944(3), 1945, 1945D, 1946(3), 1947, 1948(6), 1949, 1950, 1951, 1952, 1952D, 1954, 1955(2), 1956(4), 1956D(3), 1957(3), 1957D(5), 1958D(3)

Found: 3 pennies (1 at Bank of America, 1 at White Hen Pantry, 1 outside a playground), 1 dime (outside a playground), 1 gift card (a Dunkin' Donuts card with 60¢ on it)

Just A Bit

At a bank yesterday I got a nice surprise. A teller gave me an envelope of foreign coins, mostly Canadian. The envelope had in it fourteen Canadians, four Canadian nickels (2 Ni), four Canadian dimes, one Canadian quarter, one UK 5 pence, one Ecuador 10¢ and Bermuda 10¢. Last night I did just a little coin searching.

1,960 quarters produced just one Canadian and two US nickels.

The dimes were better. 4,000 coins yielded two silver Rosies (1964, 1964D), seventeen Canadians, one UK 5 pence and one US penny.

The nickels were pretty good. I searched 1,200 coins and found one War Time (1943P), one Canadian (1 Ni), one Bermuda 5¢ and one Euro 5¢ (Italy). The Euro 5¢ is the first one I've found from Italy in a roll.

The pennies I searched stunk. 5,000 of them produced just six Wheats and forty-three Canadians. The Wheats were:

1941(2), 1942(2), 1945, 1953

Found: 2 pennies (1 at Burger King, 1 at work)

Not Bad

Last night while Henry slept (and while he was trying to sleep, as it took a while for him to put himself down) I searched some coin.

115 small dollars produced a mint set dollar (2004D).

The quarters, 2,720 of them, were good. They yielded two silver Washingtons (1944S, 1964), five Canadians and one UK 10 pence. It seems like I've had pretty good luck with quarters lately.

The dimes were also good. I searched 1,350 dimes and in them found three silvers (1918, 1958, 1959). The 1918 Mercury is the second oldest dime I've found. It was odd to find three silver dimes and not have one of them be a 1964.

The nickels were so-so. 2,020 yielded nine Canadians (7 Ni). That's a very high percentage of pure nickel Canadians, but at barely 2x face value, I'd much rather find a War nickel.

I also searched 1,850 pennies. In them I found nine Wheats, fourteen Canadians and one US dime. The Wheats were:

1930, 1934, 1944, 1944D, 1952, 1956, 1956D(2), 1957D

Found: 1 penny (at Sovereign Bank), 1 quarter (at Sovereign Bank)

Redeemed: $16.20

Proofs Galore

Today we had some friends of ours over. We didn't do too much with them, just went out for ice cream, but it was great to have them over. Henry played like a star for them and gave them a big dose of his tricks. Later even though he was pretty tired he was a lot of fun.

This morning and this evening I searched some coin. Four large dollars and eighty-one small dollars didn't produce anything.

With the halves I was hoping for results similar to last weekend's great batch. I didn't think I had much of a chance of replicating that bunch, but I actually came quite close. 8,007 half dollars turned up thirty-six 90% silver halves (1962D, 1963D, 32 x 1964, 2 x 1964D), eighty-one 40% silver halves (8 x 1965, 6 x 1966, 28 x 1967, 24 x 1968D, 15 x 1969D), fourteen proof halves (2 x 1972S, 3 x 1981S, 1989S, 2 x 1991S, 1995S, 1997S, 2000S, 2002S, 2 x 2006S), and twenty mint set halves (2002P, 2 x 2003P, 2 x 2004P, 2 x 2004D, 2005P, 2005D, 4 x 2006P, 2006D, 3 x 2007P, 3 x 2007D). That might be the biggest batch of proofs I've found! The 1997S seems to be one of the tougher proof halves to come across.

400 nickels yielded just four Canadians and one silver plated US nickel.

1,450 pennies produced eight Wheats and twenty-seven Canadians. The Wheats were:

1927, 1935, 1945, 1951, 1951D, 1953, 1957D, 1958

Found: 3 pennies (1 at Costco, 2 at Sovereign Bank), 1 nickel (on a street near our house), 2 dimes (1 at Costco, 1 at Bank of America), 2 quarters (at Sovereign Bank)

3,000 Coins in a Fountain

Last night Meg and I tried something new with Henry. We took him to a nearby park. There we hung out in the playground for a little bit, not too long as it was buggy. Henry seemed to like both the swing and the slide. As always he also enjoyed staring at the other people, especially the children.

After he went to bed and this morning during my commute I looked at some coin, a whole lot of hand rolled stuff.

200 small dollars, seven half dollars, and 1,200 quarters turned up just four Canadian quarters and one Canadian Loonie.

I fared better with the dimes. 3,150 dimes yielded three silver Rosies (1946, 1954D, 1964D), eight Canadians, four Bermuda 10¢, one UK penny, one US penny, one Trindad and Tobago 10¢, and one East Carribean States 10¢.

The nickels weren't too bad either. I searched 1,920 of them and found two War Times (2 x 1943P) and eleven Canadians (6 Ni). I've now found four 1943P's this week.

The pennies were pretty good, but boy were they messy and gross. About 3,000 of the 9,900 coins I searched must have spent a long time submerged. Perhaps they were from a fountain? They were very corroded. In them I found forty-two Wheats, sixty Canadians, eighteen US dimes, one UK penny, and one Euro 5¢ (Spain). The Wheats were:

1916, 1935, 1936, 1940, 1944(2), 1944D, 1944S, 1947(2), 1948(3), 1950, 1950D, 1951, 1951D(2), 1952D, 1953(2), 1954D, 1955(4), 1955D, 1956(2), 1956D(3), 1957, 1957D(5), 1958(2), 1958D

Yesterday morning I also finished a book I was reading, The Napoleon of Crime: The Life and Times of Adam Worth, Master Thief, by Ben Macintyre. It is about a Victorian criminal. The subject matter isn't something I usually spend time with, but I liked another book I read by the same author and it is my favorite time period to read about (at least lately). I enjoyed this read like his other book. This book is about Adam Worth, a successful career criminal. He grew up in the United States, but after a large Boston bank robbery he fled to England and took on a new alias. In England his power grew and he eventually became accepted by high society, even though he was secretly still orchestrating many elaborate bank robberies and forgery scams. The book follows his career and that of many personalities who he crossed paths with or influenced. It concentrated heavily on his theft of Thomas Gainsborough's Duchess of Devonshire. Worth kept the painting for almost twenty-five years, even through a prison sentence. At times, Macintyre got a bit too philosophical for me about Worth's "relationship" with the painting, but that's my only complaint about the book. Otherwise the book was quite fascinating and seemed to be well researched.

Found: 1 quarter (at Hannaford's)

Debate #2

Last night before and during the debate I searched some coin. I wasn't really up for the debate, but as a political junkie I just had to watch it. Not sure I should have. It seemed to be a repeat of the first one. Luckily, I seem to be on some sort of roll with my coin searching.

2,000 nickels (one box) produced one Buffalo (1915, worn and rusty), two War Times (2 x 1943P), four Canadians, and one Polish 2 Zloty coin. The Polish coin is a first for me.

5,000 hand rolled pennies were even better. They yielded thirty-four Wheats, thirty-eight Canadians, two Bahama 1¢, one Euro 2¢, one Swiss 2 Rappen, and two US dimes. One of the US dimes was a great one! It's a 1917D Mercury dime. Not only is it one I needed, but it is the oldest and rarest dime I've found and it came in a penny roll! My previous oldest dime was 1923. How strange. It is fairly worn, but the date and mint are clear. The Swiss coin is a new one. It's older too, well at least for a foreign coin, 1958. The Wheats were:

1911, 1918(2), 1919, 1926, 1937, 1941(2), 1942, 1944(3), 1946, 1948D, 1949D, 1950, 1952, 1952D, 1953D(4), 1955, 1955D(2), 1956(2), 1956D(2), 1957, 1957D(2), 1958D(2)

Found: 2 pennies (at Burger King)

The Cold

Well, I think the cold has finally struck our whole family. It seems to have worked its way through Henry, I think I'm beginning to kick it and Meg has, unfortunately, just been struck. I hope moves through her quickly and Henry can now get back to his normal sleep routine.

I searched some coin last night, all hand rolled.

7,240 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1953D) and seven Canadians. That's the fourth new US quarter variety I've come across in two weeks! One of the Canadians was also a new one for me, the 2008 Freestyle Skiing quarter.

The dimes were OK. 3,200 of them yielded one silver Rosie (1958D), twenty-three Canadians, and two US pennies. That's an abnormally large number of Canadians to find in this amount of dimes. Too bad none of them were silver. At the bank I scored two silver dimes (2 x 1952). One I found resting on top of trash can (old eagle eye here spotted that!) and the other I got from a teller.

I only searched 240 nickels, but it was a good batch. I found one Liberty (1911), two Buffaloes (1913 Type II, 1916), and one Canadian. That's only the fourth Liberty nickel I've found and the first one since April. It's a new one, but I was really hoping it'd be a 19th century nickel or better yet a Shield nickel. The Buffaloes are very worn; both were in the same roll.

1,750 pennies produced ten Wheats and eleven Canadians. The Wheats were:

1918, 1936, 1944, 1951D, 1952, 1953, 1956D, 1957D(3)

Tonight I have 2,000 nickels to search and 5,000 pennies.

Found: 1 penny (at CVS), 1 dime (a silver one, at Sovereign Bank)

Apple Picking

Today Henry, Meg and I went apple picking. We met up with some friends of ours and later had dinner with them. I'm sure apple picking will be a yearly tradition for our family, but probably not at this place. There was little atmosphere. The orchard was entirely under massive power lines. :( It was a bit expensive too. The place did have fainting goats though!

I searched some coin before we left and afterwards in the evening.

235 small dollars didn't produce anything.

8,000 half dollars yielded quite a bit! In them I found thirty-nine 90% half dollars (1935S, 1937, 1941, 1942S, 1943D, 1944, 1945D, 1945S, 1949, 1954, 1958D, 1962D, 2 x 1963D, 21 x 1964, 3 x 1964D, 1964?), ninety-nine 40% half dollars (5 x 1965, 13 x 1966, 33 x 1967, 34 x 1968D, 14 x 1969D), one proof half (1979S), three mint set halves (2003D, 2004P, 2004D), and one Jamaican 50¢. I had a great feeling for these boxes based on the twenty silver ones showing, including two Walking Liberties and two Ben Franklins! The Jamaican coin is a first for me and one of the 1964 Kennedys has two heads, it's a trick coin someone made.

Well it seems about time, but finally I'm finding 2008 coins, not many of them, except for 2008 pennies and quarters, but some. A little while ago I found my first 2008D penny, last weekend I found a 2008P half dollar and last night I found a 2008P nickel. I have yet to find either 2008 dime.

Before watching the debate I searched some coin.

29 small dollars and 76 half dollars turned up two 40% silver half dollars (1968D, 1969D).

I did pretty well with the quarters. 4,800 of them yielded one silver Washington (1960), one US dime, one French 1 Franc, and 1 UK 1 Shilling. It was great to find a new Washington variety. That's three this week! The UK coin is the oldest (1954) and only pre-decimal UK coin I've found in a roll. Here's a picture of the type.

500 dimes didn't produce anything.

In 640 nickels I found two Canadians, one UK 20 pence (I'll trade a US nickel for those any day!), and two UK pennies. One of the US nickels was the first 2008P nickel I've found. If I had guessed at the start of the year I would have guessed I'd find this variety sometime in the Spring, not such a long time after I found the 2008D!

The pennies were so-so. 1,850 of them produced seven Wheats and nine Canadians. The Wheats were:

1948, 1950, 1954, 1955, 1956D(2), 1957

Found: 1 penny (at Costco)

7 Months!

Today is Henry's 7 month birthday. For his "present" we got him a new carseat. It is quite robust and is certainly much larger. It should last him for quite a while, hopefully until he goes into a booster seat. We're hoping he'll fuss less when we put him in this one. He'll probably look small in it for a bit.

I did some coin roll hunting last night while we watched TV.

162 small dollars, two half dollars, and 520 quarters didn't produce anything.

I did better with the dimes. 1,050 of them turned up three Canadians. One of the Canadians was a 1967. In that year some of their dimes were produced with 80% silver and the rest were made with 50% silver. The two varieties weigh the same so there isn't an easy way to tell them apart. It's the first one of this variety I've found in the wild.

440 nickels didn't yield anything.

I also did alright with the pennies. In 4,200 of them I found thirty-seven Wheats, thirty-seven Canadians, two Bermuda 1¢, and one US dime. The Wheats were:

1930, 1935(2), 1941(2), 1942(4), 1944(2), 1945(3), 1949, 1949S, 1951D(2), 1952D(2), 1953D(3), 1954, 1955, 1955D, 1956(2), 1956D(3), 1957, 1957D(2), 1958, 1958D(2)

Found: 3 pennies (1 at Home Depot, 1 at Stop & Shop, 1 at Walgreens), 2 dimes (1 at the Getty, 1 at Stop & Shop)
