Tennessee Quarter Recall

Hang on to any of the new 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 recently issued", Tennessee 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 Tennessee quarter, which was created by a University of Tennessee graduate," Owens said.

"Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices"

Being from Tennessee, maybe I should resemble that remark! :lol:
Then again, maybe not. (Besides, I didn't go to U.T. :) )

Maybe that's why there's a "shortage" of nickels? :bdsmile:
