Today Meg and I helped out some friends by watching their son, Henry's little friend. They were very cute together.

3,600 quarters produced three Canadians, four US nickels, one US dime, one Bahamas 25¢, one Chuckie Cheese token, one Family Fun Center token, one Cuba 25¢ and one Italy 10 Lire (1953). The Cuban coin and the Italian coin are new types for me.

2,000 dimes had one silver Rosie (1964D) and seven Canadians.

1,200 nickels yielded two Canadians (1 Ni), one Canadian quarter, one Italy 10 Lire (1973) and one Irish 10 pence (1993). The Canadian quarter is a new one for me. I'm not sure how they exactly fit that one in a nickel roll. The Italian coin is a pretty good size too.

4,000 pennies turned up twenty-six Wheats, thirty-four Canadians, one US dime and one UK penny. The Wheats were:

1929, 1937(2), 1939, 1940, 1941, 1944, 1946, 1947(2), 1950(2), 1952, 1953, 1955, 1955D, 1956(3), 1956D, 1957(2), 1957D(2), 1958D

Found: 1 penny
