I got this in a e-mail from Meg yesterday:

Forgot a funny comment from Henry yesterday. I was trying to explain to him that Memorial Day is about remembering the people who fought and died in wars for our country, and he told me "and vehicles. It's about remembering army vehicles."

25 small dollars had nothing.

1,920 quarters produced one Canadian, one Australian 10¢, one UK 10 pence and one Indian 5 Rupee. The Indian coin is a new type for me.

2,100 dimes yielded one silver Rosie (1947).

5,720 nickels turned up four Buffaloes (3 x dateless, 1936), six War Times (2 x 1943P, 2 x 1944P, 2 x 1945P), seven Canadians (3 Ni), one Bahamas 5¢ and one Ecuador 5¢. That's the most Buffaloes I've turned up in one batch!
