Whaddaya mean, no NJ quarters at the bank?

Post by copp.. » Thu, 24 Jun 1999 04:00:00



Dear friends,
             I walked into a large savings bank today, and asked for a
couple of rolls of NJ quarters.  They said they have only gotten a few,
from customers.  I can't believe they got NONE from the Federal Reserve
Bank.  Geez.  This bank is actually located in the City of Philadelphia.
I can't believe this!!!

     No wonder, I have to pay $14 a roll for bank wrapped statehood
quarters.  I will have to try another bank, and let you know the
results.

     Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
           Roxanne :)

      If a bank has enough quarters of any kind to supply
customers, then there is no mechanism for them to stock
other quarters, it costs them money, in lost interest,
in handling and transportation.

       It is difficult to get a single roll for much less
if the bank doesn't have them.    I asked them to save
me five rolls, the first two were Denver mint, and the
NJ came through as P mint, which messes up my collecting
system, so I have five rolls I am  not sure I want, but
I am not able to trade or sell them, sorry. :-)

Regards,

Joe Fischer

My store in NJ gives them out in change all day long.

I think the idea is to find them in uncirculated condition.

  I haven't seen an Ike$ in a cash register since 1980.  
Do some still trickle into circulation even today?

     A little over a year ago, I saw someone trying to pay for the bus with one
(our buses accept SBA dollars, so if they called the bus company and asked if
they could pay with a dollar coin, they would have been told "yes").  I quickly
gave him four quarters for it.  It was a Bicentennial Ike (Type II if memory
serves), probably one of the millions that were squirreled away years ago
because "it'll be worth something some day".

 This is so true, I have found several of the NJ quarters, but the short time
that they have been around all are beat up already. I don`t think that they are
going to wear very well.

A friend who's a cashier at my workplace's cafeteria came across 3 of them
a month or 2 ago.  I bought them from her.  (She saves the "unusual" stuff
for me.)

So long as I can still get Jerseys, I'm always happy to provide them at
$23.20 for two rolls, including Priority Shipping.  Cost to you: $11.765
per roll (which includes your 33 cent stamp).  Profit for me over face
value: $0.00.

Just a public service, so long as I can get 'em.  Which is easy, since
we're flooded with 'em up here.
