Here's a picture of Henry looking at my Buffalo nickel album. He actually said, "Henny like Dad's coin book" while I was taking this picture. I wish I had the audio.

Last night's coins were pretty good.

3,080 quarters rounded up four Canadians, two Bermuda 25¢, one New Zealand 10¢, one Bahamas 25¢ and four US nickels. The New Zealand coin is a new one for me.

3,000 dimes had one silver Rosie (1964), three Canadians, one UK 5 pence and four US pennies.

1,320 nickels yielded one Buffalo (1924), one War-Time (1943P), three Canadians and one Bermuda 5¢. That's the first new Buffalo I've found in some time and it's in pretty decent condition too!

5,500 pennies turned up thirty-eight Wheats, thirty-nine Canadians, nine US dimes and one Brazil 1¢. The Brazil coin is a new type for me. The Wheats were:

1919D, 1926, 1939, 1941(2), 1942(2), 1944(4), 1945(4), 1946, 1947(2), 1949, 1950D, 1952(2), 1952D, 1953, 1953D, 1953S, 1954S, 1955, 1955D, 1956D(2), 1957D(2), 1958D(4)

Found: 2 pennies
