One To Go!

Yesterday was a good day for us. The weather was great, Henry behaved excellently and I did really well with my coins.

7,840 quarters produced sixteen Canadians, three US nickels, two UK 10 pence, one East Carribean States 25¢, one Barbados 25¢ and one Cayman Islands 25¢. One of the Canadians was an 80% silver coin, a 1942. Also in the mix was a proof quarter, 1999S DE. Unfortunately I already had that proof quarter, but it was still good to find another one. The Barbados 25¢ is a new type for me.

1,850 dimes yielded five silver dimes (1944, 1948D, 1949D, 1951, 1962D), two Bermuda 10¢, one Canadian, one East Carribean States 10¢ and one UK 5 pence.

1,320 nickels turned up one War Time (1945P), two Canadians, one US dime and a US penny. In the batch were two US nickel varieties I needed, the 1938D and the 2009P. It's been since December of 2007 since I've found a new Jefferson variety (not counting new ones)!!! Now I only have one more to find to complete my album, the 1943D.

2,550 pennies rounded up twenty-four Wheats, twenty Canadians and one US dime. The Wheats were:

1920, 1924, 1929D, 1939(2), 1940D(2), 1941, 1942, 1944(2), 1948S, 1950, 1950D, 1951(2), 1951D, 1952D(2), 1953, 1955, 1955D, 1958, 1958D

That's only the second 1929D I've found. I was also surprised to find two 1940D's in one night as that coin took a while for me to find.

awesome! I'm really happy for you. Fingers crossed for that last one. Will you stop searching nickels once that one turns up?

Thanks! I think of all coins those two (now one) were the coins I wanted most. I don't think I'll pursue nickels as aggressively once I find the 43D, but I might still get customers rolls of them. I tend to find a lot of good foreign stuff in nickels.
