I did pretty well with last night's coins.

27 small dollars didn't have anything.

4,040 quarters produced one silver Washington (1956), eleven Canadians, two US nickels, one Bermuda 25¢, one Euro 50¢ (1999 Italy, worth 71¢), one Italian 200 Lire (1993) and one Italian 10 Lire (1954). That's the first Euro 50¢ I've found and one of the Italian coins has a new reverse for me.

5,600 dimes weren't that good to me. They had one silver Rosie (1959) and fourteen Canadians (one was 1963, 80% silver).

3,720 nickels turned up two Buffaloes (dateless, 1936D), seven War Times (3 x 1943P, 1944P, 2 x 1945P, 1945S), eight Canadians (1 Ni) and one Euro 5¢ (Finland). That's only the third mint marked Buffalo I've found in the 101 Buffaloes I've turned up! This one is the least rare by mintage, 24,814,000.

Found: 2 dimes
