Default My Wife Did Good

Every once in awhile, my wife and I buy a couple of boxes of pennies. She is not big on old coins, but she likes to go through and look for the wheaties with me. In our 2 boxes last night, we found 20 wheaties total, so about average. Her box however contained a very nice 1955 D, a semi key date 1914 S, and a crusty 1907 IHP! She didn't even know what the IHP was. She kept looking at the back of it, and finally said, this is a wheat, but it also has a shield at the top. I said "That's an Indian Head!" "Is that good?" she asked. I am not sure I will let her play anymore.

I would let her keep playing. As a matter of fact I would let her do all of the work while I watch because my luck with rolls sucks.

Fisher F2 (the 3-coil "Supreme" package) with a black plastic thing that came with it that was advertised as a pinpointer but works better as a garden stake.
UPDATE: The Fisher died while it attempted to swim. Replaced with a DR.ÍTEK MT-XR and Kuman pinpointer because I'm poor.

Wow - congrats! How many dollars in pennies have you gone through? I've looked through $450 in pennies and still haven't found an IHP.
