A quick coin update ...

I found my first large dollars of the year, forty. Nothing great in them though.

8,300 halves didn't turn up anything. That was a whole lot of work. Better luck this week, I hope.

7,400 quarters produced one silver Washington (1943), twelve Canadians, one US nickel, one Bahamas 25¢ and one Bermuda 25¢. That's my first new silver quarter in seven months! I also found a new modern quarter, the 2009D DC.

2,800 dimes had one silver Rosie (1962D), four Canadians, one Barbados 10¢, one Singapore 10¢ and one UK 5 pence.

640 nickels rounded up just one Swiss 20 Rappen.

Lastly, 3,000 pennies yielded seventeen Wheats, thirty-four Canadians and five US dimes. The Wheats were:

1917, 1936, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1944(2), 1947, 1951, 1951D, 1953D, 1956, 1956D(2), 1957D(2), 1958

Found: 7 pennies, 1 nickel, 2 quarters

Redeemed: $1.25
