Yesterday was Meg and I's third anniversary. We didn't celebrate it too much as Henry had a fever and needed some extra TLC. He did well in the morning and had a lot of fun with his friends at a botanical garden, but in the afternoon in evening he was a bit cranky, not too bad though. This morning he's doing better.

Last night I did pretty well with my coins.

17 small dollars and 47 half dollars turned up two 90% silver halves (1964, 1964D) and five 40% silver halves (1966, 1967, 2 x 1967, 1969D).

2,200 quarters had three Canadians, two US nickels, one US penny, one US dime and a religious medal (is it a sin to deposit one of these for 25¢?). The rolls were mostly solid rolls of one particular state quarter or another. I hate going through such rolls. This time I got a bit lucky with them and found $2.75 in extra quarters.

880 nickels turned up a Buffalo (1936), nine Canadians (2 Ni), one Bahamas 5¢ and one Netherland Antilles 25¢ (1977). That's the first Buffalo I've found since August and the first dated one I've found since June! The Netherland Antilles coin was a new type for me. In the mix was also one key date Jefferson, the 1939S.

1,250 pennies yielded five Wheats and twelve Canadians. In the bunch was a new penny for me, the 2009 Professional Life variety. The Wheats were:

1946, 1952D, 1956, 1956D, 1957

that's a fantastic keeper percentage on the halves. I bet you wish you had 8000 from that source!

Ha! Exactly what I was thinking. Don't mind the easy score at all! More silver for Henry's college fund.
