I picked up the money: a pound coin plus assorted change total 2.53, which I put in a charity box when I got off my bus.
Excellent!

Among 95 cents of other, spendable coins yesterday, I found a 1955-D Wheat cent! At first I thought it said 1959 and thought "aw, so close", then picked it up and saw that last digit was a five! The reverse is a little road-rashed (it was a sidewalk find after all) and kind of ruins what would otherwise have been a nice 68-year-old coin, but hey, a Wheat cent is still a Wheat cent! It's probably happy to find a home after a 68-year career in circulation.

It's the fifth Wheat cent I've found since moving to a new city in late August of last year. The oldest was from 1944.

last night I scored $3.08 in well-scattered change, the most I've found in one night since may 18...

among last night's pickins:





a decent 1937 wheatie, joy: no roadrash!!!




i rolled up to an air-vac near the end of my route to find that some kind soul left a tidy pile of quarters for me...

and..





...here's a roadkill zincoln I picked up a few nights ago, almost completely unrecognizable as a cent, I added the circulated 2005 for comparison..

i am nearing the $100-mark for the cycle, now almost 8 weeks on...

Yes. First plastic 10 note I've ever found 'in the wild'. I've picked up a couple of fivers before and once found a paper 10 by the roadside a few years ago when they were still in circulation.

It seems that all of you find goodies, whereas this is what I find in parking lots. 2014 Shield Cent for comparison.

Found this little guy on the street while walking the dog the other day. I don't find '39s that often even CRHing, so this is a keeper for me. A bonus is the relative lack of scratches considering it was just lying on the street.
