After going a nice walk with Meg and Henry and playing outside in the yard with Henry (he likes to dribble his ball like a soccer ball and push the stroller around the driveway) I searched some coin.

I picked up just one small dollar, but did get a roll of new 2009P William Henry Harrison dollars.

2,800 quarters produced one silver Washington (1962), four Canadians, one Kahunaville Token, one Sweden 1 Krona (2000, worth 11¢), one Cayman Islands 25¢, four US nickels, one US dime, one US penny and one US dollar. The US dollar, a Susan B., is the first I've found in a roll of quarters. The roll was three coins short, so someone knew the worth of the coin. The Swedish coin is a new type for me. The Kahunaville Token comes from a chain of restaurants. Their motto is "Tropical Oasis of Food and Fun!"

4,000 dimes yieled six silver dimes (1942, 1943, 1959, 1963D, 2 x 1964), eight Canadians and one UK 5 pence.

2,000 nickels turned up one Buffalo (1936), one War Time (1944P), three Canadians and one Japan 1¥ (worth 1¢). The Japanese coin is a new one for me. The Buffalo is in a pretty good condition, too bad it is another 1936. The War Time nickel is really beat up.

The bank had no pennies for me to pick up.

Found: 4 pennies (in Burger King)

Don't like that Swedish portrait much... looks rather "basically"-drawn!

I agree. His face looks disfigured to me.
