Thread: More Ignominy for Wisconsin

    More Ignominy for Wisconsin

    Apparently, there's flawed Wisconsin commemorative quarters out there. And I'm not talking about the design, either.

    Poor Wisconsin: being ugly isn't enough -- it has to be flawed as well.

    If I ever find one of those quarters I will be in hog heaven! This is great! A rare occurance where the mint screwed up makes the WI quarter a LOT BETTER!

    It still doesn't makeup for the lame design.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    At least it covers 3 of the basic food groups! (ok...it's lame )

    And color me blonde, but I would never be able to pick up a WI quarter, examine it, and think, "Wow, that corn leaf IS kinda hanging in the wrong direction..!"
