Check Out the Odd Money I Found Today

Today I took a long walk to Sprouts, and on the way I spotted this dime on the sidewalk. Then I walked over to the gas station and McDonald's but struck out. Nothing. 

Walking along the street, I found the half penny! This is the same stretch of road where I've found other pennies that have been cut in pieces. I wonder if someone cuts them up then tosses them out their car window or what.

Then I went to a drive through and found 2 pennies. At the store, a big fat nothing. Then on the way home I went to another gas station and found 2 pennies. 

Then I spotted a coin in the dirt and it ended up being a penny from Ecuador. It reads:  Banco Central Del Ecuador. Cool!! I can't get a good close up photo of it. It's really dark and not very photogenic. It's up at the top above the half penny. I wasn't going to count this penny but just looked it up and it has the same value evidently as U.S. pennies so I'm counting it! But I won't count the half penny.
