I got my first 2021 quarter yesterday -- The Tuskegee Airmen. It's the last
coin in the "America the Beautiful" (national parks) series. (Still waiting for
my first 2021 penny.)

For the rest of 2021, quarters will be minted with the familiar Flanagan design
that had been used since 1932, although the reverse will be General Washington
crossing Delaware River.

From 2022 to 2025 will be a series commemorating Prominent American Women,
followed by a series celebrating the United States Semiquincentennial in 2026,
and then a series depicting youth sports (?!) from 2027 to 2030.

I stopped collecting quarters around the start of the state park
quarters. Ought to look back into it again. I probably have thousands
of dollars of old silver coins stashed away.

Oh, I'm hardly a collector. I just like to take one or two of the shiniest
examples of each design and throw them in a jar. That's no way to store a coin
collection.

Hey, that's something! My 88 year old grandfather recently passed, and
he did something similar. We now have a couple jars full of coins.
Some of which are newer, like 1970's half dollars that are worth very
little. But there are quite a few silver coins that he just tossed into
jars when they were new in circulation. I found some back to the 1800's
that must have been odd-ball coins that weren't commonly seen in
circulation by the 1940's - 1950's... he likely just put them aside and
sat on them. My extent of collecting these days is about the same... I
simply set them aside when I find a rare silver dime in circulation, a
wheat penny, or whatever catches my eye.

You are way ahead of me.

Thanks for the heads-up.

But I'm making progress ... I got 2 Tuskegee Airman in the first week
of April. From the same register, so probably fresh out of the roll.

And I now have George on both sides, with my first Crossing.

I just counted a stack of quarters that had 87 from the Denver mint, 13
from Phillie, and 3 from the Blank mint. I'm pretty sure that the Xing
was from tonight's drive-through, though.

The ones without mint marks would be from Philly unless they are from 1965-
67, in which case they could have come from any mint. But everybody knows
that.

With a quizzical look, Rick B. observed:
1 '65 and 2 '67s.

In Chevy terms, the pickup front end "forehead" became smaller in '67,
but both years had the headlights low, just above the bumper.

'67 Impalas were hinting at the sort of backend the OtherGuy's
Barracuda had at the time, while the '65s were still close to
conventional back decks. (The 'Cuda seems to have flattened the tail
lid in the '70s.)

Do you ever find silver coins? I did a quick search and found a coin forum
discussion where people said it was very very uncommon to find them, but
they still popped up here and there. I've never seen one, but I also don't
usually pay attention.

Howard was thinking very hard :
I think there may have been one or two that I caught in all the years
since the sandwich was spread. A wheat penny once a year may happen.

I do have a 2021 D dime, living in the present.

Most by far have been picked out of circulation. Very, very rarely do I
find one. I've found a few 40% silver half dollars in recent years,
however. Always check the reject coin bin in the Coin Star machines...
slivers weights a bit differently, and you will occasionally find a
silver coin rejected into that bin... some people that use Coin Stars
don't bother to check them and just leave them there.

Yes, a couple of weeks ago. Which is relatively late -- I usually get the first
penny of the new year by April. I don't expect to get the new quarter for a
couple of months.

I finally got the 2020 Weir Farm quarter, all the way from Denver.

I've only logged 3 of the 2020 quarters, and not many of those. (The
Weir Farm coin sounds familiar, but it's not in the log). I also seem
to be missing 2010's Yellowstone.

In Pensacola this last weekend, I picked up two 2022 quarters, both the
Sally Ride stamping and both with 'P' mint marks.

I don't seem to have these yet.

I think the Wilma Mankiller quarter just came out. She was a Native American activist and Chief of the Cherokee.

On Sunday, Linda Howard pointed out that ...
June 6th, it seems. That's the third in the series, and I haven't seen
one yet. Sally Ride is second, and I just picked up the lead-off Maya
Angelou (D this time).
