    U.S. Treasury recalls Alabama quarters

    Hang on to any of the new State of Alabama quarters. If you have them, they may be worth much more than 25 cents.

    The U.S. Treasury announced today that it is recalling all of the Alabama quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each state.

    "We are recalling all the new Alabama quarters that were recently issued," Treasury Undersecretary Jack Shackleford said Monday. "This action is being taken after numerous reports that the new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other coin-operated devices."

    The quarters were issued in the order in which the various states joined the U.S. and have been a tremendous success among coin collectors worldwide.

    "The problem lies in the unique design of the Alabama quarter, which was created by an Auburn University graduate," Shackleford said. "Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and the nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices."

    "IT AIN'T EASY BEING ME!"
