    Results from 01-27-2007 and January totals - stat lovers rejoice.

    As I will be out of the country tomorrow night through next Friday, this will be my last results for January so I also included my totals for the month.

    First off for 01-27-2007 I got 1 box of nickels, 30 rolls of pennies, and $2.50 in loose half dollars.

    Out of the loose halves I got 1 - 40% Kennedy (1967).

    The rolls of pennies produced
    7 wheat pennies (1944-S, 1951, 1952-D, 1953, 1955-D, 1956-D, 1958-D)
    8 Canadian (1968(2), 1979, 1982, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1995)

    The box of nickels was my best total for pre-1960 nickels in 2007 to date:
    38 pre-1960 Jefferson nickels (1939(3), 1940, 1941(2), 1942, 1946(4), 1946-S, 1948-D, 1949, 1949-D, 1952(2), 1953, 1953-D(3), 1953-S, 1955, 1955-D(3), 1956-D(3), 1957-D(5), 1958-D(2), 1959-D(2))
    2 Canadian (1982, 2000)
