US Quarters

14+kitties
March 13th, 2010, 09:12 AM
Over the past 8 or 9 years I have been working on getting all of the US quarters with the 50 States. I have 42 of them. Getting a little impatient to finish the set. :rolleyes: If anyone happens to have the ''missing" ones I would gladly pay for the quarters and costs of mailing.
States needed:
California
Colorado
Hawaii
Idaho
Kansas
Minnesota
New Mexico
Texas
Silly, I know but hey, we need silly occasionally.
Thanks anyone who can help. :thumbs up

Sorry 14+. I just went through a pile of my US change and I guess most of my quarters were the older ones because only two had states on them and they were Washington and Oklahoma.
I will be in the US next week and will check my change and the change of my friend to see if I can get any of the missing ones for you.

Are you looking for any particular year or just the state?

I head up a pop fund at my office and get loads of quarters. I'll keep an eye out for any of the listed states. :thumbs up

Thanks guys and gals! I appreciate it.

That would be great klm. The States came out with these coins 5 a year for 10 years. I think they started in either '98 or '99 so the collection is all available now. I have slowly been getting them through work but these States just don't seem to be popular. :shrug:
Winston - I have some neat coins from through the years. I don't do anything with them but put them away. I keep telling my kids that's their inheritance. :laughing: The neatest one I think is from China. Someone passed it off as a toonie at work. I think I also have a triangular one but can't remember where it's from without going and looking for it. The other day I got a 25 cent coin from the Cayman Islands. It's cool to see where coins come from. I'll never get to see the places (and that's fine) but I get to see their money. :D

14+, I'm pretty sure I have extras of all of those if you want them. No need to replenish...Canadian coins don't spend very well here. :o You want? :D

I'll ask my mother and my husband. They're always exchanging quarters and Tom has a big cardborad map with spaces for the quarters. I'll show him this list and ask him what he's got. I'm sure he must have something from the list of the ones you need.

Growler, I have extras of some if you let me know which ones you still need I will go through them and see what I have. I still have your address. :thumbs up

Well because of where I work 99% of the guest's we have are American so we deal with 99% American money.

My boss who is from the States is collecting the coins as well and I think he's pretty much done. Both sets, as there is a P mint and D mint.

Anyway my point is I am always looking at the change we get at work for him and I will do my best to remember to look for the ones you guys need.

I won't have a chance to start looking until the middle of May though. So if anyone still needs help by then please send me an email to remind me and what they need. I enable pm and to be sent an email notification as I don't always get a chance to come here during the summer. So hopefully it will show up in my email inbox.

I since then spent them all. So much for collecting. :o

Thanks so much dustybird. :thumbs up I have 20 coins with both D and P. When I first started collecting these so long ago I was told by the truck drivers bringing them to me that there were two sets. Every time there was a new one out they brought both to me as soon as they got them. Unfortunately I lost track of them when they got a new route. It is a long process trying to get both. At this point I will be extremely happy to say I have one! I can send some of my doubles to growler so she can finish her set hopefully.
I am sure between the two of us, and anyone else who is interested in them, will remember your kind offer. :thumbs up

Oh, that's right--I forgot about the two mints. I don't have the complete P set, just the ones minted in Denver. So except for maybe one or two, they'll all be D coins. :o

I'm almost certain I have Hawaii, I remember seeing it in Tim Hortons drive through and since it didnt have our traditional canadian Caribou on it, I put it in my purse or ashtray.
I'll check it out tomorrow and let you know if I still have it or if I have since donated it for scrumptious Canadian coffee. :D

I would just like to say thank you very much to everyone who came forward with their cash. :D It's acts of kindness like this that keeps me coming back to Pets. :thumbs up Well, that and being able to spout off and show off pics of my babies. :D:rolleyes:
Hazel - you are terrific!!!!! Not only are you helping me finish off a collection you are helping growler as well!! Can't ask for more than that!! If I find any of the territories I will let you know. :D Melinda - I thank you as well. :thumbs up I truly appreciate it. The folks on Pets are the bestest. :cloud9:

Melinda

what does growler need? and Hazel? our territories? which one(s)?

hazelrunpack
March 16th, 2010, 04:42 PM
The only US territories I have were USVI and um...dang, I think there was another one...Puerto Rico, maybe? I kept one of each. The other USVI is in 14+'s set. But I'd stopped looking through my spare change for a while, so they might have been crossing my palm without me knowing it. :D I didn't know there was a DC one, too?

Otherwise, unless growler and 14+ are looking for both a complete D and a complete P, they'll have all the States they're missing as soon as I can get to the post office. :thumbs up

Melinda
March 16th, 2010, 04:49 PM
alrighty, I thought maybe you were collecting our provinces and territories

14+kitties
March 16th, 2010, 05:01 PM
Nah Melinda. I made the offer but hazel turned me down. Seems they don't like our money down there. :p j/k!!
If you check the website I posted at the very bottom of the coin set it shows the territories. I also did not know they were doing those until I got the District of Columbia in my change a few weeks back. Very neat.

Oh, I thought you were talking about the US coins that came out in 2009. :o Sorry. :o

But I'm really not a coin collector. I had originally started collecting them for the nieces and nephews, but now they're not interested anymore so I have extras. :D Normally, though, I'd rather spend coins than save them. :laughing:

Hazel, got my coins today!!!!!!!!!!!! Just wanted to say a big thank you for sending them!!!!!!!!! :grouphug: Between you and Melinda I now have all but four of the territories. Won't be long before we get them too!!
Thanks so much hazel!! I really appreciate it!.
Thought I'd add a pic of what I have been working on for a long time now. Almost complete. :D

That's quite impressive! I was collecting them for a long time, but I needed them at one point.:(

I think I might have the booklet I was keeping them in. If I have it I'll send it to you. It keeps them in nice order.

I had all the check-out girls checking quarters for the territories today while I was in town and we didn't come up with a one!!!! :frustrated: I think they've all been collected by Canadians! :laughing: :p

I'm sure they'll start turning up eventually--I've noticed a lot of the early series states are starting to surface again--so I'll keep my eyes open. :D

Thanks Melinda! I still need Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa and Northern Mariana Islands to finish the set. I am ecstatic I have all of the states though. Can't thank you gals enough!

:D Yes please!! Would love it! I have them for a few of our sets over the years. It really does help. But I still have lots of loose coins too.
