We are not avid numismatists, but for quite sometime, me and Surya have developed this hobby of collecting US quarters released from various states. It it fun and informative time when I get changes from the local dispenser and then we plop down on the sofa to check how many of them are new and how many redundant. Surya updates the catalog on his Mac while I sort the coins. The new ones are kept in a separate box while the repetitive ones make their way to the coin box, used for laundry. So far we have a good collection of coins from 48 states; lets see when the rest 2 are showing up their faces..
