Last night's coin roll hunting turned up some good stuff.

I didn't find anything in 6 small dollars and 400 quarters.

5,500 dimes turned up two silver Rosies (1952D, 1964), seven Canadians, ten US pennies, five UK 5 pence and five Cuba 5¢. The Cuban coins are new varieties from a new country! That's the second time this week that I've found a coin from a new country. One such coin is worth 5¢.

2,160 nickels produced two War Times (1943P, 1944P) and four Canadians.

1,900 pennies yielded nine Wheats, eleven Canadians and one US dime. The Wheats were:

1918, 1936, 1944(2), 1945, 1948, 1952D, 1957D(2)

Found: 4 pennies (2 at Costco, 2 outside Stop & Shop), 1 dime (at Costco), 1 foreign coin (a Canadian quarter outside Stop & Shop)

I really like that perspective building on that coin. Nice design... and TWO new countries in a week! They say things come in threes, so I wonder what that will be!

I got a new variety yeesterday; a new "unknown" type of sweet stuck to a coin! Gross! ;-)
