I came across one heck of a silver stash within my halves this weekend. 8,161 half dollars produced thirty-six 90% silver halves (35 x 1964, 1964D), thirty-five 40% silver halves (1965, 7 x 1966, 15 x 1967, 10 x 1968D, 2 x 1969D) and one proof half (2004S). I wish there was a more variety, but I'll take this treasure.

I also searched a bit of coin I got at a small bank (it never produces much, but it is convenient). 16 small dollars, 160 quarters and 250 dimes had nothing. 320 nickels yielded a War Time nickel (1944P) and 550 pennies produced one Wheat (1942), one Canadian and one US dime.

Found: 1 dime

Redeemed 2010: $1.75
