Silver Dime Hoard #3

This weekend things began pretty well with a successful trip to the "Red Diner." It's a great place for kids (Henry likes the movies with lots of old time cars in them) and somehow we avoided telling Henry about the demise of our local Friendly's. Henry and Hazel impressed a several tables of customers with their dance moves.

On Saturday Meg and I got rare chance to spend some time together. We went to an antique furniture store to look at bookshelves and some other furniture and made a quick trip to Dunkin Donuts. We live large! It went by just to quickly. By the time we've settle into being without the kids our time is over. I can't wait to have a nice dinner out together in two weeks. Henry and Hazel had some time at Nana and Grandpa's.

Late on the day in Sunday I took the two kids to the Ecotarium. It was crowded, but it didn't matter to much. There are only families their and everyone seems to be quite understanding of each other. We're all in the same boat, I suppose. Henry ws disappointed that the model train was running, but he still enjoyed showing it to me. I "outdid" myself and attempted to share a can of grape juice with Henry and Hazel. Hazel was satisfied just to put the can up to her lips. She didn't get much of anything from it. :(

Last night Meg and I got treated to one of the best at home dinners we've had with the kid in sometime. Lots of good, quiet playtime while Meg and I finished eating! The highlight of the dinner was when Hazel accidentally banged her head and went to me first for a hug and kiss, then Meg and then Henry after he held out his arms and asked her to come over. He gave her a hug and a kiss and Hazel said, "thank you."

Hazel's sleep was much better than the night before. Unfortunately Hazel's thrown up twice today at home and Henry's been extremely demanding. I'm not sure what's going on.

34 small dollars had just one mint set dollar (2005P).

4,520 quarters produced seven Canadians, nine US nickels and three Bermuda 25¢.

3,650 dimes turned up forty silver dimes and two Canadians. About midway through these dimes I stared to come across rolls with one or more silver dimes in them. One roll had eight in it. I even came across my second Barber dime (1914D). This one is in much better condition than the first one I found too! This is the third silver dime hoard I've come across (one on one 11/18/08 had 109 silver dimes in it and one on 6/10/10 had 51 silver dimes in it). I only wish some of these dimes had S mint marks on them.

1914D, 1937, 1939D, 1941, 1942(3), 1943(2), 1944(6), 1945, 1946(2), 1948, 1949D, 1950D, 1951, 1953D(3), 1954, 1954D, 1957, 1957D, 1959(2), 1960D, 1962D(3), 1963D(2), 1964, 1964D

1,640 nickels yielded one War Time (1943P), five Canadians (2 Ni), one Bahamas 5¢, one US penny and one Turkish 25 Kurus (2009). That's the first coin from Turkey I've found. It is my second new country for 2012.

1,800 pennies rounded up eleven Wheats, twelve Canadians and five US dimes.

1941(2), 1944(2), 1944D, 1946S, 1948, 1952, 1956D, 1957D(2)

Found: one penny
