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!

    Now that is a good one. So duct tape doesn't hold everything together. Who knew. Sandee, you and Zane and Little Bit all have a fantastic Saturday.

    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.

    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

    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.
