Last week Henry asked Meg, "are there normal people in Boston?" She couldn't get him to explain the question further. I suppose the Republican attacks on Massachusetts liberals have gotten to my son.

Hazel slept through the night!

67 small dollars and 24 half dollars produced one 40% silver half (1966).

4,680 quarters rounded up one silver Washington (1949), eight Canadians, four US nickels and two US dimes.

3,900 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1964), five Canadians, one US penny and a Columbian 10 peso (1991).

2,120 nickels got me one War Time (1943D), five Canadians (3 Ni), four US dimes and one Bahamas 5¢. That's only the third 1943D nickel I've found.

2,800 pennies turned up eighteen Wheats, twenty-eight Canadians and one US dime.

1916, 1936, 1944(3), 1949, 1950D, 1952D, 1953, 1953D, 1955, 1956D(5), 1957, 1958D

Found: one penny, two foreign coins (a Canadian penny and a 1951, 80% silver, Canadian dime)
