Dada's Home

Last night I had my best yet welcome home from Henry. He hasn't started saying "Momma" or "Dada" in a way that definitely linked to us, but he does know what they mean. When Meg tells him, "Dada's home!" He reacts appropriately and starts looking for me (if he hasn't heard me come in). His greeting was the highlight of my day yesterday.

At night I searched some coin.

160 quarters and 200 dimes didn't produce anything.

4,160 nickels yielded sixteen Canadians, five US pennies, one MBTA token (still worth $1.25), one Panama 5 Centesimos (1970) and one Spanish 1 Peseta (1947). The Spanish coin is a first for me. The batch also turned up a key date Jefferson, the 1955.

(The above image was taken with a friend's camera. Meg and I are getting a new camera and I wanted to test out the macro ability on a camera similar to one we're thinking of getting.)

1,100 pennies turned up seven Wheats, nine Canadians, two US dimes and one Irish 1 penny (1995). The Wheats were:

1942, 1944(2), 1954S, 1956, 1957D(2)

I was looking at that picture, and thinking how old the coin looked before I read it was 1947. I do like stumbling across these "vintage" examples.

Heart-warming to hear Henry's story. My own "Henry" has now reached that stage of understanding what a mirror is, if you see what I mean. As an example, he saw a picture of my Brother on my cell phone, and instantly recognised it as his father; pointing to him (he was in the same room) and pointing back at the image, saying "dada".

The picture came out very-good but I can't see the date.

The 1947 is not the issue date.
The real date is in the two stars on the reverse.
I see the 19 but the other looks like 52 or 62.
1947:(56) and (51) are more valuable.
Oddly enough none were actually issued in 1947.

Very interesting information. I like the toning of the coin alot. I thought it was a War Nickel at first.
