Lots of pans in the Fire!

Update: Thank you for everyone who said they would look. I believe that I have most of them from Alice. But it is good to know I am not the only one looking!!!

I am trying to get caught up on some projects and my friend Candy suggested I ask on my blog for assistance on one of them. She assured me that I probably am not the only person trying to finish this project. So here it is....

The State Quarter Book SSSSS! Yep, you saw it correctly, I am trying to complete 5 of them. I have been working on them for years...asking, OK, begging for people to pleeeese look at their quarters, especially the P's. Something to do with the Mississippi River, or the Mason/Dixon line. WHATEVER!

So, here is the Deal!!!! I have extra D quarters. For you all that need the Ds. I need the following P's. Just leave me a comment and I will get in touch with you.

Nevada - 2
Nebraska - 4
Colorado - 4
N Dakota - 2
S Dakota - 4
Washington - 1
Idaho - 1
Michigan - 1
Kansas - 2
Wyoming - 4
Oklahoma - 5
New Mexico - 3
Arizona - 5 ( insert here..are you kidding me? I can't buy more than $2.00 of Arizona quarters! You are a bank, correct??? OK, I'll take $2.00....I'll be back tomorrow!)

Sorry to all you non-state quarter collectors for all this carrying on. (Or to you RA who doesn't sort them!!!) I know if you don't save them, you just don't get it. A quarter is a quarter...

My hubby (a quarter is a quarter..and PRE WARNED - don't you DARE pop these out of the books!!) was so glad this was the last year for the quarters. He hasn't been able to lay one down without me grabbing it! But, alas for him....the Presidential dollars are starting...Life is Good!

Oh, I had to laugh at this post. My husband asked me just the other day if I'd make a blog post asking for quarters from the Denver mint as we get mostly Philadelphia mint issue here. I'm sure he'd be happy to trade. I'll check with him about what he has and what he still needs.

I've got a Washington P in my wallet, so that one is yours... I just called my husband and he is collector also and needs "D"s....he told me to print your list so he will see what he has and maybe we can do an exchange. :)

Oh! I can't wait to get home and go through my quarters, I'm sure I've got some I can pass on.

Speaking of I'm saving my Euros for you! They are so pretty on the back with different pictures representing the different countires in the EU.
