Last night Henry told me, "Hazel had a bad dream at nap time. She dreamed a large monster was eating her ... I asked her and she said, 'Yes.' Something tells me Henry doesn't know the power of suggestive interrogation! Meg told me afterwards that Henry, himself, had such a dream recently.

This morning Henry asked me why I had to go to work today if today is my birthday. I like that idea! He also wondered why he had to go to school on such a special day ... thanks little dude!

17 small dollars had one Canadian.

8,000 half dollars turned up eight 90% silver halves (2 x 1941, 1942S, 1944, 1944S, 1946, 2 x 1964), seventeen 40% silver halves (2 x 1965, 1966, 6 x 1967, 5 x 1968D, 3 x 1969D), six proof halves (1976S, 2 x 1978S, 3 x 1979S) and one new modern mint set one for me, the 2012D.

3,360 quarters yielded five Canadians (one was a 1966, 80% silver), one US nickel, one US penny, one quarter with a cud on the reverse (2006P North Dakota) and one new modern one for me, the 2012P Denali. That's the first 1966 Canadian quarter I've found in a roll. The cud error is worth about $12. Here's a link to an E-bay sale of a very similar coin; my coin must be from the same die and is in the same condition.

2,300 dimes rounded up one silver Rosie (1946) and one UK 5 pence.

1,240 nickels produced one War Time (1945S), one Canadian nickel and one Canadian dime.

13,950 pennies yielded ninety-five Wheats, one hundred sixty-five Canadians, twenty-six US dimes, one US nickel, one Bahamas 1¢, one Guyana $5 (2008), one Australian 5¢ and one Euro 2¢.

1909(2), 1911, 1917D, 1919(3), 1920, 1926, 1928, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1938, 1939(3)
