Nice Surprise

Last night I got a nice surprise. As I was picking up coin from a regular spot I noticed the teller had some rolls of halves. I asked to buy them all. When I got to my car I looked through a roll. Sweet! Silver!

170 half dollars produced seven 90% silver halves (1963D, 4 x 1964, 2 x 1964D) and seventy-four 40% silver halves (2 x 1965, 7 x 1966, 22 x 1967, 25 x 1968D, 16 x 1969D).

In 1,760 quarters I found just five Canadians.

2,050 dimes yielded two silver Rosies (2 x 1964) and five Canadians.

1,600 nickels turned up just four Canadians (1 Ni).

The pennies were also so-so. In 2,500 of them I found six Wheats, ten Canadians and one US dime. The Wheats were:

1939, 1944(2), 1944D, 1955, 1958

I also got a new 2008 HI quarter in change yesterday. I forgot about that coin. I'll have to get a roll of them.

Found: 1 penny (in East Cambridge Savings Bank), 1 dime (outside the post office)

Nice pick up with the halves.

Yesterday I also received my first Hawaii Quarters in change. Two of them. I gave them to my nephews allowing them to finish their sets.
