17 small dollars and one half dollar didn't have anything.

1,920 quarters produced one proof quarter (1987S), two Canadians, three US dimes and three US nickels. The proof is in pretty good condition, but the rim isn't too shiny. I'm kind of surprised, but glad, I spotted this one.

The new proof quarter puts me at 61 new US varieties found this year in circulation. That's one more than all of last year and it's only July!

1,650 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1962D), one Canadian and one UK 5 pence. In change this morning I got a proof dime, the 1992S! Just 2,858,981 were minted; thus this is now the 4th rarest dime, by mintage, that I've found.

520 nickels had five Canadians (1 Ni).

2,500 pennies turned up thirteen Wheats and fourteen Canadians.

1934, 1936, 1944(2), 1945, 1946, 1951, 1952(2), 1953, 1955, 1955D, 1956D

Found: 3 pennies, 3 quarters, 1 foreign coin (a Canadian penny)
