Log Cabin

Last night after taking Henry to Home Depot (he sure likes those special carts with the car or truck attached to them), eating dinner and mowing the lawn I searched some coin. (Meg watched two boys for part of the day, cleaned and cooked ... she was more wiped out than I was.)

240 quarters, 150 dimes and 40 nickels produced one Canadian quarter and a War Time nickel (1945P).

8,200 pennies yielded forty-nine Wheats, sixty-seven Canadians and one Panama 1¢. In one box was two new 2009 Log Cabin pennies. That's the first of those I've come across. Only 284,800,000 were minted! An additional bonus of the night was a Canadian I found. It was a 1920 George V penny. That's the second copy of that variety I've come across. The Wheats were:

1919, 1926, 1927, 1936, 1940(2), 1941(3), 1944(5), 1944D, 1945(6), 1946(5), 1947(2), 1950(3), 1950D, 1952D, 1953, 1953D(3), 1954, 1955, 1956(3), 1956D(5), 1957, 1957D
