Happy Birthday Henry!

Today it is Henry's 3rd birthday! Fortunately I got to see him before I went to work (Miss Hazel was still sleeping). Instead of the usual "Mommmmmm," he cried out "Daddddd" to let us know he wanted to get up and out of bed. Strangely, I was touched. Later this morning his friends will be coming over for a small party. Hope it goes well.

2,520 quarters rounded up one silver Washington (1957D), seven Canadians, two Bermuda 25¢, one Dominican Republic 25¢, one US nickel and one Brazil 50¢. The Brazilian coin is a new one for me.

2,900 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1962), eight Canadians, two US pennies, one Irish 5 pence and one UK 5 pence.

960 nickels produced two War Times (1943P, 1944S) and two Canadians. There was also a 1955 in there. This is only the third 1944S nickel I've found. The last time I found one was July 15th, 2008!

3,800 pennies had twenty-five Wheats, thirty-six Canadians, three US dimes and one UK penny.
