Getting Spoiled

Last night I wasn't expecting much with my coins (I know it's all random, but still ...), but the coin gods were good to me again!

5,920 quarters produced one silver Washington (1964), twelve Canadians, two US pennies, one US nickel and a new National Park quarter (2011P Gettysburg).

2,200 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1953D) and sixteen Canadians (including one 80% silver, 1956).

1,360 had just one Canadian.

8,600 pennies rounded up forty-six Wheats, ninety-three Canadians, three US dimes, two Bahamas 1¢, one Bermuda 1¢ and a British farthing (1884). As I was just starting these pennies I noticed one roll with a bigger coin in it. I assumed it was a new British penny (that's what it usually is). Not quite! It was an 1884 British farthing! It is in awesome shape. It's the third oldest foreign coin and eighth oldest overall that I've found in rolls! It's not worth that much, but to me it's awesome.
