    State Quarters Collecting

    I have been collecting the state quarters that have been coming out for the last few years (yes, I have one of those little coin books you put them in ). But, it's now September and I have not seen a single quarter from this year (Oklahoma, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii). And I am still missing Utah from last year . What I am noticing is that I'm getting a lot of new, old quarters (they're the quarters from a few years ago, but they're all shiny new).

    Do you collect the state quarters, and have you gotten any of this year's quarters?

    Re: State Quarters Collecting

    I have been collecting too. I actually started because I was annoyed by one of the TV ads offering to sell me 5 quarters for 10 dollars.

    Right now I need Oklahoma, Alaska and Hawaii but have all the rest.

    Re: State Quarters Collecting

    I too collect them and haven't found any nor has my dad (he's usually the one who finds and saves them). I'm not sure what I'm missing from this year, but I'm still missing Iowa from 2005(?) which is really odd.

    Re: State Quarters Collecting

    i've been collecting since 1999 and have everyone except Arizona, Alaska, and Hawaii. I have New Mexico and Oklahoma from this year. Good Luck in finding them! After I find these three, it will be the culmination of ten years just to gain a total of $12.50

    Re: State Quarters Collecting

    Oh my alterna wife, you and I are so much alike.

    Yes, I too collect them and I too have that little book. And I too, haven't seen a single quarter for 2008!

    In fact I JUST tonight asked my mom to keep and eye out while she's counting $$$ at her church to get me them if she happens upon them. Not steal them of course, buy them Can't ya just picture my 84 year old mom secretly stashing 2008 quarters into her purse while nobody's looking? Yea, me too.

    Re: State Quarters Collecting

    I don't collect them but my mother in law does.

    Every. Single. One. Of. Them.

    I mean if it has a state on it she hoards it... even if she has 10 of the same ones. If its a quarter, if it has a state on it, she wants it. She had bags full of them... Unless I get to the quarter jar and roll them and take them to the bank before she does.


    Yes, I am that evil.

    I think that's the one you gave to me -- it's the state of shock!

    No. Actually that was a Chinese quarter I got at Disneyland. You should start a thread about that.

    LOL!

    I would have given you a quarter on Main Street but it would have seemed like skid row.
