    Congrats on your dime finds, I had almost the same experience with halves. I haven't found much since but I just started dimes so I hope that'll be good.

    What are those letters in parentheses?
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    Hey thanks for the warm welcome. I am in Illinois (hope not to tread on other hunters here). I do pretty small numbers, like I said it's taken me over a month for what I have so far. It is so hard for me to get halves, I was getting them from Chase for awhile but then all Chase's in my area either wanted to charge $5 per box or not willing to order at all.

    The letters in the parantheses define what location I bought the boxes at so i'll be able to track if one bank/branch is more productive than others. I figure it's fairly useful info, should let me know if someone starts dropping where I pickup at the least.

    I picked up another box yesterday before work, 2 more silver dimes 1 1946 Rosey and a 1945 merc.

    10 yen would fit, but then it was in a dime roll. Post a pic of it.

    It is a 10 won from South Korea. I forgot they reduced the size of all their coins to cut costs.
