More Sickness

(I wrote this post on January 27th, 2010)

I think most people with kids will tell you winter is hell. Well, they're right. Henry's had a cold for about two weeks now. Ugh. Yesterday he threw up and last night he had a fever. We're hoping today's a lot better. It's tough seeing him tottering around and feeling so achy.

I've searched a lot of coin over the past few nights. Except for the pennies I searched I did OK.

5,060 quarters produced one silver Washington (1964D), eighteen Canadians, one UK 10 pence, two US dimes, seven US nickels and four US pennies. Thankfully a few of the rolls had extra quarters to make up for these lower denomination coins that "snuck" in there.

7,500 dimes had twelve silver Rosies (1947, 1951, 1952D, 1956, 1962, 1963, 3 x 1964, 3 x 1964D), seventeen Canadians, two Bermuda 10¢, one Norway 10 ore (1963) and one US penny. That's one of the best single sitting silver dime scores I've had!

1,600 nickels turned up one dateless Buffalo, one War Time (1945S) and four Canadians (3 Ni).

Lastly (and least) 5,550 pennies yielded three Wheats (1947, 1956D, 1957D), forty Canadians, one Panama 1¢ and one button.

Thanks for the book, Seth!

Found: 2 pennies (1 in Stop & Shop)
