Last night I was a home a little early. Meg, Henry and I went on a nice walk. I think Henry's beginning to say "truck" a little better. You can just about make out "uck" sometimes when he says it. It sure is fun watching his language skills develop.

I picked up my weekly dose of halves a bit early. I don't think I should have rushed. :( 4,280 halves produced nine 40% silver halves (1965, 2 x 1966, 2 x 1967, 2 x 1968D, 2 x 1969D) and one mint set half (2006D).

640 quarters and 350 dimes turned up just one Canadian quarter.

240 nickels yielded a Czech Republic 2 Koron. That's only the second one I've found.

5,000 pennies had sixteen Wheats, thirty-five Canadians, two US dimes and one Dominican Republic 1 Centavo. That's a new foreign variety for me. It's worth .03¢! The Wheats were:

1917, 1935, 1945(2), 1946, 1948(2), 1949, 1950, 1951, 1951D(2), 1957, 1957D(2)

Found: 3 pennies (2 at Costco, 1 on our walk)
