The Sand Box

Last night I got to show Henry the sand box. He seemed to like it a lot. I had to swat bugs off of him and watch that he didn't eat or throw sand, but in general he was really good about it. He definitely needs some more sand toys as it is a bit sparse. Already I have dreams of expanding this play area and building him a clubhouse overtop of the sand box. He sure likes to play with a captain's wheel.

Last night's coin was fairly good to me.

82 large dollars and 25 small dollars didn't produce anything.

1,840 quarters turned up two silver Washingtons (1941, 1958D) and two Canadians. The rim of the 1941 is so worn I thought I had a much older quarter when I found, but alas.

1,850 dimes yielded one silver dime (1945) and five Canadians.

1,320 nickels produced one War Time (1944P), ten Canadians and one Bermuda 5¢. In the mix was a stamped nickel. It says "NRA" in small letters just above the dome.

Lastly, 4,400 pennies had eighteen Wheats, thirty-four Canadians, one Euro 2¢ (Belgium, 2000) and one Barbados 1¢ (1992). One of the Lincolns has the face of Kennedy stamped in it just opposite of Lincoln's face. The Wheats were:

1926, 1939, 1940, 1942, 1945(4), 1946(2), 1952D, 1953D, 1956, 1956D, 1957D(3), 1958D

Found: 1 penny (at Wal-Mart)
