Here's a good video of Henry we took last week. In it he's turning his play shopping cart about with ease. There's a second part to it, but I've had trouble uploading it. :( Tonight I'll have to try and get some video of Henry scribbling on the driveway with his new chaulk.

My luck continued last night with the coin.

5 large dollars didn't have anything in them.

8,800 quarters turned up seventeen Canadians, one Ecuador 25¢, one UK 10 pence and three US nickels. The Ecuador coin is a new type for me.

1,200 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1961D), three Canadians, one UK 5 pence and two US pennies.

800 nickels produced four Canadians (2 Ni) and one Euro 20¢ (Italy, 2000). The Euro coin is a new type for me! I also found a beat up, key date Jefferson, the 1939S.

3,700 pennies were good to me. In them I found eighteen Wheats, twenty-six Canadians, two UK pennies and one US dime. In the Wheats was one I needed, the 1930D! That's the second new penny I've found in five days. I'm on a little roll of some sort. With a mintage of just over 40 million it is not particularly rare, but here in the northeast it's tough to come across any pre-1940 pennies with a mint mark on them. The Wheats were:

1930D, 1935, 1940, 1944, 1945(2), 1946(2), 1949, 1949D, 1955, 1956, 1956D(2), 1957D(3)

Found: 1 penny (at White Hen Pantry)

The guy on that coin looks incredibly stern! Like he's saying "You will spend this not!"
