I'll Take It!

Yesterday Henry and Meg had a big day. It left them both pretty tired. In the morning Meg went to a meeting that had babysitting available. What a great idea! Henry spent 1½ hours playing under the supervision of someone at the facility. He liked their toys a lot and Meg appreciated the relief. In the afternoon they went to a play center with his aunt and cousins. It sounded like fun. I'm sorry I missed it.

I did a bit of coin roll hunting in the evening. I didn't find too much, but it was well worth the effort.

240 quarters and 500 dimes turned up just five Canadian dimes.

860 nickels yielded one War Time (1944P).

800 pennies yielded just two Wheats (1918S, 1941), four Canadians and one Taiwan 1 Yuan. The Wheats have been slight, but who cares when you find a new one so soon into the new year, right? That 1918S is a keeper for me and looks good in my album. Now there are only four pennies with mintages over and near 30 million that I haven't found, 1928D, 1930D, 1934D, 1936D.

Found: 6 pennies (2 outside Costco, 4 at Stop & Shop)

I'd like to see the chart / list, unless it's on the blog main page already and I missed it?
