Finds In A Coin Hoard (8/29/03)

Having saved her change for years, I recently searched and rolled close to
$1,000 worth for a friend.  Here's the stuff I thought was worth saving (and
bought for face value, if you can believe it):

80 Canadian cents (I haven't checked dates, yet, but I hoard these myself)

2000 Canadian Maple Leaf quarter (a keeper)

2001 Austrailian nickel (this one goes into my grandson's birth year
collection)

39 Wheat cents:

     1920
     1940
     1941     (3)
     1942
     1944     (3)
     1945-D
     1946     (5)
     1946-D
     1947-S
     1948
     1949
     1950
     1951     (2)
     1952     (2)
     1952-D  (4)
     1953     (3)
     1953-D
     1956-D  (2)
     1957     (3)
     1957-D
     1958-D
     Dateless, severely dipped and shiny, FR-2
          (talk about a candidate for Alan's Orphanage!)

21 Jefferson nickels

     1939
     1940     (2)
     1940-D
     1941
     1942 (Type I)
     1942-S (a keeper)
     1948
     1949
     1951-D  (2)
     1952
     1953
     1953-S
     1954
     1954-D
     1955-D
     1957
     1957-D
     1958-D
     1959-D

8 Washington quarters

     1962-D (the only 90% silver US coin in the hoard)
     1776-1976     (4)
     1776-1976-D  (3)

Apparently, small denomination Euro coins are making their way across the pond
in regular commerce as I also found a Spanish 2 Euro-cent in the hoard (she
wanted that one).  Last two worth mentioning were a French 5-franc (neither one
of us wanted it) and... (wait for it)...  ONE SACAGAWEA DOLLAR (2000-P) (she
wanted that one, too).

I'm keeping the Canadian quarter, the Austrailian nickel and the 1942-S nickel,
but I'm happy to offer anything else to any RCC-er who needs or wants something
(which is the only reason I grabbed the Bicentennials).  Drop me an e-mail
after you drop the "shaw" in "comshaw" (sorry, Bobby).  :-)

Might want to keep the 62-D quarter also; while certaintly not a big
value coin, it's a little special, where it was found in circulating
change...

Granted it's a 90% silver, but some collector here may need it.  I don't
collect Washingtons, per se (okay, I do collect the Statehood Quarters), and it
was a circulating find.
