    Kentucky Quarter Recall

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

    "We are recalling all the new Kentucky quarters that were recently issued,"
    Kentucky Treasury Spokesman Jack Owens 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 Kentucky quarter, which was
    created by a University of Kentucky graduate," Owens said. "Apparently, the
    duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming the
    coin-operated devices."
    HEAR ME ROAR!

    Boy....if uncirculated and in mint condition....that will be worth a couple hundred dollars down the road.

    It's great when the US Mint makes mistakes....makes everything valuable!

    Thanks for the heads-up.

The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

      I understand, though, that due to fears of counterfeiting, duct tape will be banned, effective immediately.

            Hmmm... my first impulse was crazy glue, but that's a little TOO permanent...


            No Duct Tape = National Crisis

                LOL Just teasin' ya a bit. I was falling for it too until the duct tape thing.

                I grew up as a kid in Kentucky and that state is always a target for people to poke fun at. Let's not get started on Hillbillies and Moonshine.



                Duct Tape and WD-40. Life's two essential necessities.

                    The third one is bailing wire, and the duct tape alone is worth more than the coin itself.

                        Power is not revealed by striking hard or often, but by striking true.

                        It is men who endure toil and dare danger that achieve glorious deeds, and it is a wonderful thing to live with courage and to die leaving behind an everlasting renown.

                              Man, I almost started looking for those quarters. I got up from my computer and was reading the last line as I started to walk away.
