Found a 1942 Mercury Dime Plus More Coins

Today I ran some errands and while out here's what I found:
  • a dime on the floor at the dollar store
  • a penny in the parking lot of the dollar store
  • a penny on the floor at the grocery store
  • a 1942 Mercury dime under the coin machine at the grocery store
  • a dime on the grocery store floor
I was so thrilled to find so many coins but especially the 1942 Mercury dime! Woo hoo! I looked it up and it appears to only be worth about $2 but that's okay. I'll keep this coin separate. I'll put in a pinch dime, sort of like a pinch hitter, in my found money jar.
