Keep those Tennessee quarters!

Just passing on some info.

Valuable Collector's Item

Hang on to any of the State of Tennessee 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 Tennessee quarters that are part of
its program featuring quarters from each state. "We are recalling all the
new Tennessee quarters that were 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 Tennessee quarter, which
was created by a University of Tennessee graduate," Shackleford said.
"Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together
keeps jamming the coin-operated devices."

One good tern deserves another.
That's from Bugs Bunny.
