Here's some fun pictures we took recently.

(Dig the Loverboy look Henry's got going!)

171 small dollars didn't have anything.

5,440 quarters had seven Canadians, two US nickels and one UK 10 pence. Yikes, this week I searched a lot of quarters!

1,950 dimes produced one silver dime (1923), four Canadians, one Bermuda 10¢ and one UK 5 pence. The Mercury dime was the second I found in two days and this one was in pretty good shape, especially considering its age.

120 nickels had squat. Strange, but that's all the nickels they had for me.

3,550 pennies turned up one Indian Head (1874), thirty-five Wheats, twenty-four Canadians and one Trinidad and Tobago 1¢. The Indian Head is the oldest penny and oldest US coin I've found! It's the rarest Indian Head I've come across too, 14,187,500 were minted. Except for the hole someone put in it, it is in pretty good shape.

1912, 1918, 1923, 1925, 1926, 1940, 1942D, 1944(4), 1945, 1945D, 1946(3), 1948(2), 1949(2), 1951, 1952, 1952D, 1953(2), 1952D, 1956, 1956D(4), 1957D(2), 1958D(2)
