Back To Normal

Things have seemed to return back to normal to our household. Henry's been feeling much better and acting more like himself. Meg and I have been having a lot of fun with him.

This past Saturday we took him to a local science museum (we got a membership to the facility as a Christmas present). We couldn't do much outside there because it was so cold, but we had a lot of fun indoors once Henry go over his fear of a very large taxidermied bear in the lobby. Henry particularly enjoyed watching a model train that was set up in the lobby for the holiday season. He went back to it three times. He also enjoyed watching some turtles, a possum and a couple of ferrets.

This weekend's halves stunk so I was a bit reluctant to write about them. 8,000 of them produced one Dominican Republic ½ Peso. It's a new variety for me.

I did better with last night's coins.

5,640 quarters turned up one silver Washington (1958D), eight Canadians, five US nickels, one US dime, one UK 10 pence and one Bermuda 25¢.

1,950 dimes had three silver Rosies (1943, 1945, 1964D), two Canadians (one 1962 80% silver), one Aruba 10¢ and one Irish 5 pence.

1,200 nickels yielded one War Time (1944P) and two Canadians (1 Ni).

3,300 pennies turned up thirty-three Wheats and twenty-seven Canadians. The Wheats were:

1919, 1929, 1940, 1942, 1943, 1944S, 1945(2), 1946(3), 1947(2), 1948, 1949, 1951D(2), 1952, 1953, 1953D(3), 1955, 1955D(2), 1956, 1956D(3), 1957, 1958D(2)

A teller saved me two Wheats (1956, 1957D).

Found: 2 pennies (at Stop & Shop), 1 quarter (at Stop & Shop), 1 foreign coin (a UK 10 pence, at Stop & Shop)

Hi, like that Dominican half, I found a nice Panamanian half last month. You should tell us about how you dispose of the mass quantities of coins you search. Do you re-roll, use a coin counter, turn in full boxes to one particular bank or spread them out? Just curious, there's 2 halves to the hobby. Dumping is just less glamorous LOL. Thx-
Keep up the good work.
