To beat the rain blues yesterday Meg had several friends with kids over. She told me Henry was having a lot of fun with the two boys and that they were playing with each other, screaming, etc. I wish I had seen it. Later, she made finger paints for Henry out of food stuffs. She (and I) thought this would be a great idea because he's been into his chalk and crayons and he likes to rub food all over his dinner tray. Unfortunately, he wasn't that cooperative. I'm sure he'll be more up for it in the future. Meg will definitely have lots of good project ideas for him.

I did pretty well with my coins.

7 small dollars, 480 quarters and 500 dimes produced one silver dime (1948).

5,160 nickels (two boxes and some hand rolled coins) yielded one Liberty (1907), one dateless Buffalo, five War Times (1942P, 1943P, 2 x 1944P, 1945P), eight Canadians and one Bermuda 5¢. The Liberty nickel is one of the better ones I've found. The reverse is much clearer than others I've come across. It's just too bad it's a year I've already found. I also found two key Jeffersons, 1950 and 1955.

Lastly, 2,100 pennies turned up nine Wheats, thirteen Canadians and one US dime. The Wheats were:

1944, 1944S, 1946, 1948, 1956D(3), 1957D, 1958D

Found: 1 penny (a 1953 Wheat at Stop & Shop)

Duplicate year or not, a 1907 Liberty Head is still a nice find!

Thank you for inspiring us fellow searchers for the elusive lost coins. While my gusto is reserved for finding money while taking fitness walks, I can't match the thrill of finding such old coins that you find with money rolls. MoneyWalker
