New Texas Quarters recalled

WASHINGTON,D.C. -- Hang on to any of the new State
of Texas 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 Texas quarters that are part of its program
featuring quarters from each state. "We are recalling all the new Texas
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 Texas quarter, which was
created by a Texas A&M graduate," Shackleford said. "Apparently, the
duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming
the coin-operated devices.

I was fooled myself, I even asked everyone in my office if they had any, then I read the last paragraph. That's why I put it in the back porch.
