This week Henry was goofing around a put on the Baby Bjorn. He wanted to put Hazel in there. We told him no so he put Duck inside.

For some reason my coin pickups have been pretty light this week. I guess people were too busy celebrating Mother's Day and weren't able to roll up their coins.

3 small dollars and 12 halves had nothing.

2,440 quarters produced one proof quarter (2000S VA), three Canadians, two US nickels, two US pennies, one Austrian 5 Shilling and one Irish 5 pence (1976, larger size than the others I've found). It had been two months since I found my last proof quarter so finding this was pretty cool.

1,750 dimes turned up just five Canadians and one Panama 10¢.

1,160 nickels yielded three War Times (1943P, 1944P, 1945P) and six Canadians (2 Ni).

It feels like the War Times have been turned up left and right, but the silver dimes have been really sparse lately.

3,800 pennies rounded up twenty-seven Wheats (including one Steel), fifty-five Canadians, two US dimes and one Euro 2¢.

1918, 1920, 1937, 1940, 1941, 1942(2), 1942D, 1943, 1944(3), 1945, 1946, 1948(2), 1950(2), 1952D(2), 1956, 1956D(3), 1957D(2), 1958D
