    The shop had several more bags of lightly picked over world coins today.
    They were described as probably but not guaranteed to be bound for the 10 cent bin.
    I picked out 71 of interest and got them for $10, which I suspect will have been a very decent price. I'll try to sort them into groups and take closer photos if I'm not boring you all with my extensive bargain bin collecting.

    UK: Pennies--1860, 1862, 1908, 1913, 1916, 1919, 1936, 1939
    Halfpenny: 1941
    A lot of coins in these bags were brightly copper colored but well worn, as if someone had tried to clean them with a scouring pad or something.

    Ten dollars is a very good price, only fourteen cents a piece.

    I, for one, will never get bored with seeing the results of a bargain bin search. Excellent looking selection for that price, well done.

    Bargain bin world coins are the best. I like the El Salvador, Philippines, large Canadians, India’s.... that looks like what I target as well.

    Got in a few more photos while it was light out. Japan:
    10 Sen Taisho 12 = 1923
    1 Sen Showa 19 = 1944 (Tin-zinc and tend to be ugly. This one's not too bad.)
    10 Yen reeded edge various dates
    5 Yen Showa 23 and 24 (x2) = 1948, 1949

    Canada cents: 1899(?), 1912, 1919, 1920, 1921, 1930, 1942, 1951
    Some of these look like an unnaturally bright copper color for their ages and appear to have surface scratches from cleaning. Canada.jpg
