The United States Treasury has announced they are recalling the new Michigan quarters:
"We are recalling all of the new Michigan quarters that were recently issued," Undersecretary Russell Shackelford said in a press conference Monday. "This comes in the wake of numerous reports to this agency that the quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other coin-operated devices."
"We believe the problem lies in a design flaw," said Shackelford. The winning design for the Michigan quarter was submitted by a Yooper (a person who lives in the Upper Peninsula or UP for you non Michiganders).
"Apparently,the duct tape holding the two dimes and nickel together keeps jamming in the coin-operated devices."
