Big Batch

Last night I started working my way through a big batch of coins. It was a good way to distract myself from my scratchy throat. Things seem to be a little better today, but it looks as though Meg might be beginning to feel sick.

3,360 quarters turned up eight Canadians and three US dimes.

1,500 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1958D), two Canadians, one Barbados 10¢ (1980) and one UK 5 pence (2003).

The nickels were OK as well. 1,200 nickels produced one War Time (1945P) and eight Canadians (3 Ni).

5,000 pennies turned up nineteen Wheats, thirty-four Canadians and four US dimes. I got "close" with one of the pennies. The Wheats were:

1926, 1929, 1929S, 1940, 1941(2), 1942D, 1944(2), 1945(2), 1949, 1950, 1953D, 1953S, 1956, 1956D(2), 1957D

If it helps, and you both like it, try and eat lots of hot and spicy food with plenty of chillies in.

The Capsicum in them which is what gives you the "sweats" and the runny nose if you eat enough of it, can apparently help "flush" through your sinuses and speed up recovery.
