Arkansas State Quarters

Attention Coin Collectors!!!

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

This action is being taken after numerous reports that the new quarterswill not work in parking meters,toll booths, vending machines, pay phones or any other coin operated devices. The problem lies in the unique design of the Arkansas quarter, which was designed by a team of Ozark specialists. Apparently the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming up the machines.

I'm reading this out loud to Bessie, and she gets all excited and goes and opens the register as I read it --- then I get to the last line, and I'm laughing so hard (we both thought it was true) that I almost wet my jeans!

Thanks for the laugh!
