Getting Better All the Time

Nope it's not the coins that are getting better, 2009 hasn't been too good, it's the family life. It seems like every week we have more fun with Henry and that hour or two I get with him every day is more rewarding. It is nice to think about all of us connecting even more in the near future.

I searched a lot of coin last night as I put off the snow shoveling until this morning (when the snow stopped).

2,800 quarters turned up four Canadians, one Bahamas 25¢, one South Korean 100 Won and two US nickels.

The dimes were better. 2,950 of them produced three silver Rosies (1960D, 1962D, 1963D), four Canadians and two Bermuda 10¢.

My luck this week with the nickels continued. I searched 2,600 nickels and in them I found three Buffaloes (1916, 1917, 1935), twelve Canadians (3 Ni), one Bermuda 5¢ and three US dimes. The two older Buffaloes were found in the same roll and were both very worn (Nic-A-Date). The 1935 Buffalo is in pretty good shape. I also found another key date Jefferson, the 1949S, the same key as the night before.

2,500 pennies yielded eleven Wheats, fourteen Canadians and four US dimes. The Wheats were:

1918, 1941, 1942, 1945(2), 1946(2), 1952, 1953D, 1955, 1957

Found: 2 pennies (1 at Circuit City, 1 at the Food Court), 1 dime (at Circuit City)
