Back on Track

Yesterday afternoon we got our tub/shower back! I was quite surprised at how quickly we were able to get a plumber over.

Last night I got back on track and did some coin roll hunting.

106 small dollars and six half dollars turned up one 40% silver half dollar (1967).

880 quarters produced just five Canadians.

I had better luck with the dimes. 1,100 of them yieled two Canadians. One of the Canadians was an 80% silver dime (1965) and the other was a 50% silver dime (1968). Each came from a different bank, quite a coincidence.

400 nickels only had one Canadian in them.

I did OK with the pennies, however. In 2,400 of them I found five Wheats, twenty-seven Canadians, one US dime and one Panama 1¢. The Wheats were:

1935, 1940, 1944, 1947D, 1953

In the morning I found a nice stash of coins by the coin counting machine at a bank. In it was a bunch of foreign coins.

Found: 1 penny (in Belmont Center), 1 nickel (at Sovereign Bank), 6 foreign coins (1 UK 5 pence, 2 Canadian quarters, 1 Canadian dime, 1 Bermuda 25¢ and 1 United Arab Emirates 1 Dirham)
