2,000,000 Pennies!

Here's a shot of Hazel Meg took during the day. Henry has since taken possession of this blanket.

Here's a photo of his girls Henry took. This is definitely his best photo yet.

This a jungle scene Henry created. He's starting to make some cool scenes with his toys. I like how he uses these trees and animals now.

8,000 halves turned up ten 90% silver halves (1940, 1945, 2 x 1959, 6 x 1964), fifty-seven 40% silver halves (7 x 1966, 17 x 1967, 25 x 1968D, 7 x 1969D, 1976S-Ag Proof), fifteen proof halves (1972S, 2 x 1976S, 1976S-Ag Proof, 2 x 1978S, 1979S, 2 x 1980S, 3 x 1981S, 1982S, 1983S, 1989S) and three commemorative halves (1986S Statue of Liberty, 1989S Centennial of the Congress, 1995S Civil War Battlefields Circulation). That's my best haul of the year. It was a lot of fun going through these coins, lots of variety and good stuff in there. I've found two Civil War Battlefield coins before, but never the circulation strike variety. It's the rarest (by mintage) coin I've found now, 119,510.

7,200 quarters produced one silver Washington (1941), ten Canadians, one US dime and two UK 10 pence. In there was also one variety I needed, the 2010P Hot Springs quarter.

3,500 dimes yielded two silver Rosies (1957D, 1963D) and fourteen Canadians.

1,800 nickels rounded up one proof (2003S) and six Canadians (1 Ni). Three new ones in one week!

9,000 pennies turned up fifty-two Wheats, ninety-three Canadians and three US dimes. These pennies pushed me over the 2 million mark! The Wheats were:

1911, 1930, 1935(2), 1939, 1940(4), 1941(2), 1944(2), 1944D, 1945(2), 1946(2), 1947, 1948, 1949, 1951, 1952, 1952D, 1952S, 1953(4), 1953D(6), 1955, 1955D, 1956D(2), 1957D(3), 1958(2), 1958D(4)

Found: 5 pennies, 2 dimes and 2 foreign coins (a Canadian nickel and a Canadian dime)
