A Leak!

This morning while Meg was taking a shower I heard a lot of water pouring. I looked everywhere; I even looked outside. Then I looked in the basement. Yikes! There was water flowing from our main drainage pipe! Ugh. The plumber says he can fix it today. It isn't what we were hoping to start our day with at all. At least the basement isn't finished and the pipe is totaly exposed and easy to work on.

Last nights coins did me pretty well.

6,200 quarters turned up two silver Washingtons (1963, 1964D), seven Canadians, one Bahamas 25¢, one Bermuda 25¢, one US dime, four US nickels and two US pennies. In the mix I also found a new quarter, 2009P Guam. I was getting bummed, thent towards the end of this batch I found the two silvers.

6,000 dimes yielded four silver Rosies (1962D, 2 x 1964, 1964D), nine Canadians, one UK 5 pence and three US pennies.

3,560 nickels had fourteen Canadians (9 Ni), two US dimes, eight US pennies and one proof nickel (1970S). In 1970S was also minted as a circulation piece, but this one is definitely a proof coin. I also found a key date Jefferson, the 1955.

So I just went to the bank for the first time yesterday and asked them for some nickles, they had 70$ worth so I got them all. They looked at me funny and asked why I needed so many I just told them to search them. Anyways do you ask for rolls also or what do you do when you open them? I had some left over rolls from before but it would seem odd to ask for those coins and then rolls to reroll them.

Sometimes I put them in coin counting machine, sometimes I reroll. Just never dump in the same bank that picked them up from.
