Last night was a tough night for us. Henry got up four times before midnight. We brought into bed with us at #5. At some point, maybe 1AM, he threw up. It was pretty gross and was quite a mess. He was very scared and kept crying out, "wipe duck!" It took as a long time to get him settle and back asleep in his crib (as well as clean up everything). It could be a sleepy day today.

Two days ago I had some good luck with the coins.

3,840 quarters had four Canadians, three US nickels, three US dimes and one Canadian nickel.

1,350 dimes produced ten silver Rosies (2 x 1951, 1954, 1954D, 1956, 1960, 1962, 1963D, 1964D, 19??), one Canadian and one US penny. All of the silver dimes were in the 2nd to last roll I searched. Some of them were nice upgrades to the ones in my album.

1,440 nickels had just six Canadians (2 Ni).

I hit big with the pennies. 6,050 rounded up three hundred eighty-one Wheats (with one Steelie), fifteen Canadians and two US dimes. That's one of the bigger Wheat hoards I've come across. Most of them were rather modern (not many earlier than 1940). They were:

19XX, 1917, 1920, 1927, 1934, 1935(5), 1936, 1938(2), 1939(2), 1940(8), 1941(11), 1941D(2), 1942(10), 1943, 1944(31), 1944S, 1945(26), 1945S, 1946(23), 1946D, 1947(3), 1947S, 1948(19), 1949(10), 1950(9), 1950S(2), 1951(10), 1951D(9), 1951S, 1952(12), 1952D(8), 1953(10), 1953D(11), 1954(3), 1954D(5), 1955(11), 1955D(5), 1956(13), 1956D(27), 1957(17), 1957D(32), 1958(12), 1958D(18)

I had a big find on the floor of Costco too! I picked up a penny only to find it was 1977S! My first proof penny! It's also the rarest (by mintage) penny I've found, 3,251,152 (the 2nd rarest is the 1931D, 4,480,000).

Found: 8 pennies

I was disappointed you hadn't scored better with the wheats given the number of them. I'm gald the post ended on a high!
