You should turn them into fiat money (paper cash) and spend them before inflation deflates their value.

I don't collect them, but I did find one in a change jar at work that was stamped off-center.

I collect them and money in general, my collection keeps shrinking instead of growing though

This is rare. Keep that quarter. A law school professor told us about a double stamp coin that someone at the US mint made for him to use as an exhibit in a counterfeiting case when he was an assistant US attorney. He found it in his office safe many years later and gave it back to the mint. These can be pretty valuable I've heard.

For some reason I do that too. I started and now have probably 200+ and can't stand spending them. Guess maybe I have this crazy idea that when my great-great-great-granchildren get them they might be worth $30 per coin.... [rolleyes] Please, somebody talk some sense into be so I can at the very least buy something really valuable. Like MAGS, or AMMO, or HOLTERS, or DOT SIGHTS, or.... Well, you get the point. superdav: I don't know anything about these coins (other than they can buy me gun stuff), so if you tell me what I'm looking for maybe I can shuffle through the jar and see what I have. What's the difference between the two mints?

I have been throwing them in a jar from the beginning. Don't know why really just thought I would save them. I don't really feel that they will be worth anything more then a quarter and someday I will just decide to cash them in. But it is a real easy way to save a little cash for that special toy that I just have to have!

Coins become valuable because few were made in a particular year... I'd expect these quarters may be worth 40 cents in 50 years... Thats about 1% interest... You're better off saving old beer cans...[beer]

I have plenty of old beer cans. Will I be rich someday? medcop

I know people who collect them from all around and they pay good $$ for ones from somewhere different.. I do believe I've got some savers tonight... "Foster's Oil Cans" [beer]

I just buy silver proof sets every year. The 1999 set of quarters is now going for about $75.00.

Oops. I posted without checking E-Bay first. Take a peek at what the whole set is bringing in: [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1363792460[/url] Good thing I bought a few extra sets[:)]
