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)
