Found Six Pennies and One's Canadian and Bent!

Today I set off with my trusty magnet on a stick for a walk. The weather is perfect. In the 70s and actually warm in the sun, but there was a good breeze once in a while. Lovely! I walked past the penny stuck in the street that I mentioned last week. I added a picture of it. Not very exciting but figured I'd memorialize it before it is so embedded or they surface over it and it's lost forever.

I kept walking and in one spot found four pennies! Then I walked on home and found the crazy bent Canadian penny in the street. It's the one in the photo below with the lovely maple leaf (and it's bent. See?). Then I put my magnet in my car when I got home and spotted another penny in the parking lot!
