I didn't do too bad with last night's coins. I just wish the lawn mower hadn't died and that Henry was a bit more cooperative. Meg did say Henry had a good time at Davis Farmland with his friends. He especially enjoyed the turtles and the splash park.

4,000 quarters produced one silver Washington (1935), five Canadians and one Italian 50 Lire. That's the second 1935 I've found and it is now tied for the oldest quarter I've found.

3,000 dimes yielded two silver Rosies (1957D, 1963D) and five Canadians. One of the Canadians was a 80% silver, 1941, coin.

2,000 nickels had one really crappy Buffalo (1920) and one Canadian.

6,000 pennies turned up twenty-nine Wheats, thirty-six Canadians, two UK pennies (1973, 2004), three US dimes and one Greek 1 Drachma. The Greek coin is a new variety for me. The Wheats were:

1916, 1941(3), 1942(2), 1944, 1944D, 1945(3), 1946(3), 1948, 1951D, 1952D, 1952S, 1953(2), 1953D(3), 1953S, 1955D, 1956D(2), 1957D, 1958D
