Attention Coin Collectors!!!

Attention Coin Collectors!!!


Hang on to any of the new State of Louisiana 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 Louisiana quarters that are part of its program
featuring quarters from each state.

"We are recalling all the new Louisiana quarters that were
recently issued," Treasury Undersecretary Jack Shackleford
said Monday. "This action is being taken after numerous
reports that the 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 Louisiana
quarter, which was created by an LSU graduate," Shackleford said. "Apparently, the duct tape
holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming
the coin-operated devices."
