The tale of a 75 year old coin


I found this 1937 quarter in my change the other day. 

I was surprised to find such an old coin!

I wonder what the history of this quarter is?

1937 Quarter

Can you imagine how many people have used it in the past 75 years?

Did it sit in a jar somewhere for years and years or has it been in constant circulation?

How many cities and states has it been spent in during that time?

Something we will never know….

  1. Deano, beautiful! My father collects old coins. He calls them, “handshakes with the past.” If only it could talk! Theadora (It would make a great short story.)
