Default Idaho quarter recall

Idaho Quarter Recall

This just came in from the university. I thought you would be
interested. Treasury to Recall Idaho Quarters WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Hang
on to any of the new State of Idaho 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 Idaho quarters that are part of its program
featuring quarters from each state.

"We are recalling all the new Idaho quarters that were recently issued",
Treasury Undersecretary Jack Shackleford said Monday. This action is
being taken after numerous reports that the new quarters will not work in
parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other
coin-operated devices. "The problem lies in the unique design of the
Idaho quarter, which was created by a Boise State University graduate",
Shackleford said. Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and
the nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices.
