Last night I did fairly well with a big batch of coin.

100 halves produced one 40% silver half (1968D).

6,000 quarters turned up two silver Washingtons (1957D, 1964), seventeen Canadians, one French franc, one South Korean 100 Won, four US nickels and one Mexican 50 Pesos (1985). The Mexican coin is a new variety for me.

9,500 dimes yielded four silver Rosies (1956, 3 x 1964), seventeen Canadians, one UK 5 pence, seven US pennies, one rubber circle and one Mexican 5 Pesos (1985). That's another new Mexican variety for me, two in one night!
