Michigan Quarter Recall

BULLETIN Lansing, Michigan (AP WIRE) -

Hang on to any of the new State of Michigan 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 Michigan
quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each
state. "We are recalling all the new Michigan quarters that were
recently 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 Michigan
quarter, which was created by a Michigan University graduate," Shackleford
said. "Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and
the nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices."
This is obviously an Al Queda plot to discredit the whole commemorative quarter supply in the U.S. Now we are going to have to debate who is responsible for the pre and post 9/11 quarter supply.....


That's where most of our tax dollars go here in Michigan, right down the frickin outhouse hole.......
