Broke the Streak

After some a nice play time and dinner with Meg and Henry I searched some coin.

Two halves didn't turn up anything

1,640 quarters broke me out of my silver-less quarter streak. Let's hope I'm in a good groove. The coins produced one silver Washington (1942), five Canadians and one US nickel.

1,950 dimes yielded just three Canadians and three US pennies. Usually this source produces some silver dimes, but not this time.

1,760 nickels were also just so-so. In them I found four Canadians and two US dimes.

The pennies got better as I continued to search. 8,150 pennies turned up twenty-seven Wheats, fifty-eight Canadians, ten US dimes, one Barbados 1¢ and one Bahamas 1¢. The Wheats were:

1918, 1935, 1937, 1940, 1942, 1944, 1945, 1946(2), 1947(2), 1948, 1951D, 1952, 1952D(2), 1953, 1955(3), 1955D, 1956(2), 1957D(2), 1958D

Found: 5 pennies (2 at Stop & Shop, 1 at Home Depot, 1 outside the Mobil, 1 at work)
