Does anyone save quarters?

Has anyone been saving those special state quarters?

Yep - Both mints, Philadelphia and Denver. Pretty well caught up with the help of my aunt. She, sis, me and uncle R are working together to get them.

I'm saving them, too. I'm trying to save five sets of them for all five of my grandkids. I'm doing pretty well through the end of 2006, but I don't have all I need of the 2007 ones yet.

Yep! I even have that board, each years quarters are in a row.
I'm not a coin collector I just thought the state quarters are a cool idea.

Well, if anyone has any:

Iowa, Nevada, N & S Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii that they're willing to share, I'd be most greatful! I'd of course send you the money for them.

I don't save quarters but I save wheat pennies and Canadian coins.

Haha those quarters caused a lot of confusion. I remember they were just coming out with those and they came out with some dollar coin at the same time (Susan B Anthony I think). But they were both silver and similar size.

I was working in a cafe and this woman came in and paid me for her latte - she was 75 cents short. I told her so and she said - no this one's a dollar coin. I looked at it - and was pretty sure it was a quarter. But she swore up and down that it was a dollar coin. Then she pointed to where it said dollar on it...."Quarter dollar" (she was pretty mad and was being pretty rude to me). I pulled an older quarter out of the register and showed her that those read "Quarter dollar" too.

She finally saw what I meant and appologized saying these new coins were confusing. She ran to her car to get more money and paid me. And fortunately stopped being rude - she actually looked pretty sheepish leaving...I felt bad for her and I was trying to be as nice as possible. But how do you tell a person they're quarter is not worth a buck?!?!

I plan on keeping one of each state.

It's interesting to see what aspect of each state is featured.

I don't think Wyoming and Utah have been released yet and the last 5 won't come out until next year.

I may have some Nevada...

I'm all up to date, which ones do you want? pm me your addy and I'll send them to you. The last one that came out here was Idaho. Oh yeah do you collect P's or D's? I just collect whatever, no specific ones, but I bet I can find you either one.
