Unfortunately I jinxed us by mentioned the good sleep we had the night before last. Last night was terrible. Ugh.

2,400 quarters yielded one proof quarter (1999S PA), three Canadians, two US nickels and one US dime. The proof is in pretty good condition. I now have found three of the five clad proof quarters produced in 1999.

3,000 dimes turned up three silvers (1945, 1951, 1964D), eight Canadians and two US pennies. That's the first Mercury dime I've turned up since May. That's a bit of a drought for me. This amount of dimes put me past last years search total. I now have searched more than last year for all denominations except halves!

1,660 nickels rounded up just three Canadians (1 Ni, a slightly older, rarer for me, 1949 George VI nickel).

4,500 pennies had twenty-seven Wheats, twenty-seven Canadians and three US dimes.

1910, 1927, 1936, 1938, 1939, 1944, 1945(3), 1946(3), 1950(2), 1951, 1952, 1952D, 1953D, 1955D(2), 1956, 1956D(2), 1957, 1957D, 1958

Found: 1 penny, 1 quarter
