Mom's Night

Last night Henry and I had a boy's night together and Meg had a mom's night with my sister at a cooking class. We did just fine. It was definitely quieter without Meg with us, but we had a good time playing together after supper. Meg definitely deserves a break!

I searched some coin last night while watching a movie. Although I didn't find another early 19th century coin, I didn't do too bad, especially with the dimes.

2,560 quarter turned up just six Canadians and a Cayman Islands 25¢.

5,050 dimes pushed me over the 800,000 mark! The one million mark is in my sights. In them I found three silver Rosies (2 x 1946, 1963D), eleven Canadians, two US pennies, one Aruba 10¢ and one Bermuda 10¢. Two of the Canadians were silver coins as well. One was a 1965 80% silver dime and the other was a 1968 50% silver dime.

2,800 nickels yielded seventeen Canadians (7 Ni) and two Aruba 25¢. I'm in a bit of a War Time nickel dry spell.

2,500 pennies (half from the terrible batch the night before) turned up four Wheats, twelve Canadians and one Bermuda 1¢. The Wheats were:

1945, 1947, 1953, 1957

Found: 2 pennies (at the Hess)

800,000! Any predictions given your current rate of searching as to when you're likely to pass 1,000,000?

Based on my current rate (assuming the rest of 2009 goes the same) about forty-four weeks.

At 2008's rate it would take 36 weeks, while at 2007's rate it would take 13 weeks!

Good find on that old coin! And, good luck with your goals for 1M dimes!
