The 36D!

This morning I finished going through a massive amount of pennies. 26,600 pennies yielded one Indian Head (1???), one hundred seventy-five Wheats, one hundred fifty-seven Canadians, twelve US dimes, one Jamaica $1, one Bahamas 1¢, one Trinidad & Tobago 1¢, 1 German 1 Pfennig and one Euro 2¢ (Spain). They were a good bunch! That's a lot of wheats. I found my first new Wheat penny variety since January, the 1936D, my first Indian head penny since August, three new foreign varieties and a steelie. It felt great to find the 36D. The Wheats were:

1910, 1918, 1926, 1935(2), 1936(2), 1936D, 1937(3), 1938, 1939, 1940(5), 1941(11), 1942(6), 1942D(2), 1942S, 1943, 1944(20), 1945(8), 1946(8), 1946S, 1947(4), 1948(4), 1949(6), 1950(3), 1951, 1951D, 1951S, 1952(6), 1952D(4), 1953(8), 1953D(8), 1954D(3), 1955(8), 1955D, 1956(5), 1956D(8), 1957(6), 1957D(13), 1958(4), 1958D(5)

It's official too. Henry has a new consonant in his repertoire. He's been saying, "nah" a lot. Like "dah" it has many meanings for him. Sometimes it means banana, sometimes Nonnie and sometimes just things that are yellow. This is some good progress, I think. I've noticed him getting better at repeating words I say while reading to him as well.

Found: 1 dime (at Bank of America), 1 quarter (at Stop & Shop)

Well done on the bits and bobs, and hearing Henry saying "nah" gave me a smile... just give it 18 years or so, when he's saying "nah" to everything you ask him to do, and then it will have worn thin! ;-)
