“Forward,” says the cow…

I heard on NPR that some the Wisconsin quarters have been showing up with an extra leaf in the ear of corn. As coin collectors love this sort of thing, they are selling on Ebay for hundreds of dollars.

I didn’t think much of it until I got back, when I realized that I had three pristine straight-from-the-roll Wisconsin quarters that had been given to me as change from my twenty at Marble Slab Creamery at the San Antonio airport. One of these quarters (shown above) turned out to have the extra leaf.

I guess I can stop saving those bicentennial quarters. See you in Aruba.
