State Quarters

If anyone has a Missouri, American Samoa, or Puerto Rico state quarter they can send me, I'll gladly pay the cost of the quarter (25 cents) plus "shipping" (cost of a stamp, I guess).

Those are the only ones my daughter needs for her collection. They'd make a nice Christmas present!

Either mint. Our collector book only has a single spot for each state, so we are collecting from either mint.

Mr. Lahey: A lot of people, don’t know how to drink. They drink against the grain of the liquor. And when you drink against the grain of the liquor? You lose.

Back in the day they used to cut up quarter dollar coins and call 'em bits. So two bits = half a quarter = 12.5 cents. One bit was 6.25 cents but no one ever talked about that... it was always two bits.

I feel like I've seen a Missouri quarter but pretty sure I haven't seen either of those territories.

I think you mean that they cut up dollar coins into quarters, but the (Mexican/Spanish) dollars were worth 8 reals, or 8 bits, so a quarter was worth two bits. Two bits is 25 cents, not 12.5 cents.

agree smiley

I also think this is the origin of the phrase "pieces of eight," there being eight "bits" in a spanish silver dollar.
