Yesterday morning my sister and I took Henry and his cousin Liam to a local big truck day. The boys got to crawl into all sorts of town vehicles. At first Henry was a bit shy about the whole thing, but soon after he did just great. Both boys were really good about waiting in line and moving on to let others have their turn. I think Henry could have spent hours there after he got the hang of it.

I've been trying to take some good open eye pictures of Hazel to put up, but so far no luck. I'll keep trying.

5 halves didn't have anything.

8,200 quarters produced one proof quarter (1999S DE), fifteen Canadians (one 1963, 80% silver), two Bahamas 25¢ and seven US nickels. That's the third Delaware proof I've found in nine proof quarters ... ugh.

4,700 dimes turned up three silver Rosies (1957D, 1964, 1964D), nine Canadians, two Bermuda 10¢, one UK 5 pence and one US penny.

3,240 nickels had nine Canadians (2 Ni), one Bermuda 5¢, one Brazil 10¢ (odd to find another one of these so soon) and one US penny. In the mix was also a key date Jefferson, the 1950.

9,500 pennies yielded sixty Wheats, seventy-eight Canadians, three US dimes, one Euro 2¢, one Euro 1¢, one Bahamas 1¢ and one clipped planchett. The Wheats were:

1923S, 1934, 1935, 1939, 1940(2), 1941(5), 1942(2), 1944(5), 1945(3), 1945D, 1946(5), 1947(2), 1948(3), 1948S, 1949(2), 1950D, 1952, 1952D(2), 1953, 1953D, 1954, 1954D, 1956(3), 1956D(4), 1957(2), 1957D(3), 1958, 1958D(2)

That's only the second 1923S I've found. It's a fairly rare one. Two "close ones" in two days ... yikes.

Found: 8 pennies, 1 dime
