A Little Fever

At lunch yesterday I got several new Formative Years 2009 Lincoln pennies. I managed to buy four rolls off of the main cashier. I'll sell them on E-Bay at some point!

Yesterday Henry was suffering from a slight fever. For that reason he was a bit off and on all day. He didn't eat much at all during supper, but was pretty playful afterwards.

Last night I picked up a lot of coin. 'Must be people cashing in for summer vacation' was the explanation I got. That sounds likely to me. I seem to find a lot of customer coin right before Christmas, as well.

4,040 quarters had eight Canadians, two Bermuda 25¢ and one US nickel.

5,450 dimes produced three silvers (1942, 1950D, 1958), nine Canadians, one US penny and one Canadian penny. That's the first Canadian penny I've found in a roll of dimes ... Whoo-hoo!

2,820 nickels yielded two War Times (1943P, 1945P), twelve Canadians (5 Ni), two US dimes, one Namco arcade token and one Bermuda 5¢.

2,500 pennies turned up sixteen Wheats, fifteen Canadians and two Bahamas 1¢. The Wheats were:

1940, 1942, 1944, 1945(3), 1946(2), 1946D, 1947, 1948(2), 1952D, 1956D, 1957D, 1958
