Arkansas Quarters

Hang on to any of the new State of Arkansas quarters. If you have them, they may be worth much more than 25 cents. The U.S. Treasury announced today that it is recalling all of the Arkansas quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each state.

“We are recalling all the new Arkansas quarters that were recently issued,” Treasury Undersecretary Jack Shackleford said Monday. “This action is being taken after numerous reports that new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other coin-operated devices”.

The quarters were issued in the order in which the various states joined the U.S. and have been a tremendous success among coin collectors worldwide.

“The problem lies in the unique design of the Arkansas quarter, which was created by a University of Arkansas graduate,” Shackleford said. “Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices.”

    That's a good one Sandee, but would be more fitting for the so-called Golden State now that the boys in Sacramento are trying to hold everything there that's falling apart together with duct tape! It appears that ignorance has moved west!

    I knew that there was something going on once I started reading dealing with quarters.
    At least it's not pennies. Ha,ha,ha.
    Have a beautiful Saturday Sandee. Enjoy the time on the water. See ya.

    • June 6, 2015 at 8:03 am

    Bwahahaha I read the whole thing, and as I was reading I'm thinking I wonder if I have any because I do have all the quarters of the states in a nice cardboard of the U.S. & saving for my grandkids, BUT then I read the last line oh & I was reading it out loud to my hubby. When we read the punch line we both bust out laughing. Dave spit his coffee out. What a surprise punch line. LOL Thanks for sharing & thanks for stopping by & your kind comment. Also very nice to meet you. Please do stop by again. If you like music we have a fun thing we do on Mondays called Mondays Music Moves Me. Steve plays and I see your featuring him & so does Mike of rambling stuff, and many other I'm sure you know. Nice to meet you and I shall look for your social networks & follow you. HUGS & Have a great weekend my new friend πŸ™‚

      Thanks for visiting and commenting. I've added you to my reader. Nice to meet you too. πŸ™‚

    and here I thought duct tape worked on everything. If they can't get the quarters in the parking meter they can use the duct tape to stick them to the outside of the meter

    • June 7, 2015 at 7:47 am

      Whatever works is my philosophy too. πŸ™‚

  17. June 6, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    Even though I wouldn't have any, being Canadian and all, I thoroughly enjoyed this! Thank you! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Yep, you have to be southern to grasp this one. πŸ™‚

    Hmmm, I thought it was going to have some kind of Duggar punch line. Didn't see that one coming. Hope you had a great weekend.

    • June 8, 2015 at 9:24 am

      Nope this was pure Empress Bee southern. We're still on the boat and will return home this afternoon. πŸ™‚

  19. June 8, 2015 at 11:10 am

    • June 8, 2015 at 11:27 am
