Home Again

Meg and Henry returned home last night. Unfortunately the father/son reunion wasn't like I thought it would be. Henry was pretty cranky for the whole evening. He didn't sleep too well at his grandparents. Perhaps things will turn around for him today (and for his mother) as he slept well last night.

Last night's coins were blah. Perhaps my hot streak has worn off?

2,800 quarters turned up just four Canadians.

2,000 dimes yielded two Canadians and one US penny.

I had my best luck with the nickels I searched. In 1,480 there was one War Time (1944P), four Canadians (2 Ni), one US dime and a Brazilian 5 Centavos. The Brazilian coin is a new one for me.

4,000 pennies produced twenty-three Wheats, thirty-six Candians, nine US dimes, one Euro 2¢ (Spain) and one Bahamas 1¢. The Wheats were:

1918, 1942, 1942D, 1944, 1946, 1947(2), 1948, 1949D, 1951D, 1953D, 1957(3)

Found: 1 penny (on the street near our house)

when you go to the bank do you just take boxes of coins or do you get hand rolled ones?

to get half dollars do you have the bank order them and get them in boxes/machine wrapped or do you get ones that people roll up?

I do both actually, depends on what they have.

All the banks I've gone to don't have any halves,except for some loose ones.

can banks order halves?
