Hang Onto Your Wisconsin State Quarters

OK, not about books, not about writing, not even about diabetes. But I would hate for any of you guys to miss out on this one.

Some Wisconsin state quarters have grown an extra leaf! Collectors are paying anywhere from $500 to $1,000 for the flawed coins.

Our new California quarter is really ugly and hasn't sprouted anything new that I'm aware of--not even a set of breast implants, which anyone who's been to LA can tell would be an EXCELLENT representation of part of our state.

And Wisconsin gets a sweet-looking cow and an extra leaf on their corncob. I'm jealous.

But we still have better cheese.

More info, and pictures of the "right" and "wrong" quarters, here.
