    I figure this is kinda random and maybe doesn't really make sense sending coins through USPS, but I need some help. Here goes!

    I've been collecting the State Quarters and America is Beautiful Quarters. I'll list what I'm missing, and maybe we can set up a pin trade as well? Or you can just mail it to me and I'll paypal you the amount of the quarter(s) and shipping lol I don't need tracking or anything; regular ol' snail mail is fine (unless it's like.. a lot of quarters.. lol). We'll see how this goes...

    • 2009 Guam (thanks @Ajk)
    • 2009 American Samoa
    • 2009 Northern Mariana Islands (thanks @Ajk)
    • 2010 Yellowstone National Park (thanks @timeerkat)

    I'll look through what I have at home tonight and let you know if I have any of your missing ones.

    I also collect them and am missing some (I have all 50 original ones, most or all of the second wave of 50, and after that my collection drops off somewhat); I'll have to go through my collection books and see what I still need.

    Aaahh, wish I would've known! My son had a State project to do and extra credit would be given if you brought in the state quarter....well, we rummaged through every pocket, drawer, car, piggy bank, purse and found practically every friggin quarter except the one we needed. Even asked my neighbors. We ended up finding one in the funniest place, his spiderman wallet! Totally forgot he even had one, he's 8. I couldn't convince him to take the other state quarters and sell them to his classmates for 50 cents...25 cents is not bad for extra credit! He didn't see the opportunity missed! Or he has more scruples than me. Lol

    I'm pretty sure I have the first three, though I may not be able to part with Guam yet o_O I collect them as well in a map that I have and those few don't have spaces so I've always wavered as to keep those or not. Feel free to shoot me a PM so I don't forget !

    • 2009 Northern Mariana Islands
    • 2011 Vicksburg National Military Park
    • 2012 El Yunque National Forest

    You’ve sidetracked me from my scavenger hunt. I’ve got a 2011 Olympic Park and a 2011 Glacier Park. I’ll pm you a picture (they aren’t the shiniest).

    While I was going through my collection just now, the mismatchedness of it was bothering me. For instance, my original 50-state collection is in a one-mint book, but the book with the first half of the National Parks is two-mint since that was the only option at the time (and it only goes to 2015, so I need a book for all coins since 2016). But I've just ordered two matching books (one for the original 1999-2009 State Quarters/Territories collection and one for the 2010-2021 National Parks collection, one mint each), so when they arrive later this week I can transfer everything over to one cohesive set. If someone wants my old books for their collection and don't mind them mismatched and dinged up a bit, I can send them for just the cost of shipping (once I pop my own collection out and transfer them over, that is. ;) )

    Here is what I am currently missing:

    2009
    American Samoa
    Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands

    2011
    Glacier National Park (Montana)
    Olympic National Park (Washington)
    Vicksburg National Military Park (Mississippi)

    2012
    Acadia National Park (Maine)

    2016
    Shawnee National Forest (Illinois)

    2017
    Ozark National Scenic Riverways (Missouri)
    Ellis Island National Monument (Statue of Liberty) (New Jersey)
    George Rogers Clark National Historical Park (Indiana)


    Here is what I have available for trade. If there is an asterisk next to it, I have either the Denver or Philadelphia available as these are my doubles from the two-mint book; otherwise, I have Denver mint only. I also took some photos of these if you need them. Except for the really recent ones they are a bit dirty and dinged up from being in circulation, but I can let you know specific condition if needed) :

    States
    1999 - Pennsylvania / New Jersey
    2000 - Virginia x2
    2001 - Rhode Island / Vermont
    2002 - Mississippi
    2003 - Alabama
    2004 - Florida
    2008 - Hawaii

    National Parks

    2012 - Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (Hawaii) / Denali National Park & Preserve (Alaska) *
    2013 - Great Basin National Park (Nevada) / Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine (Maryland) * / Mount Rushmore National Memorial (South Dakota) *
    2014 - Shenandoah National Park (Virginia) x2 / Great Sand Dunes National Park (Colorado) * / Everglades Natioanl Park (Florida) x2
    2015 - Kisatchie National Forest (Louisiana) * / Blue Ridge Parkway (North Carolina) / Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge (Delaware) / Saratoga National Historical Park (New York) x 2

    @timeerkat Why does your territory book have 2 slots? one for front and one for back?

    I started collecting dollar coins too, but I don't take metro as often, so it's kinda on the back burner haha I only ave William Henry Harrison and James Polk.

    Thank you for saving those 2 for me!! :D (Yellowstone and Fred Douglass)

    It's a two-mint book, so one slot is for the Denver Mint (-D) and one slot is for the Philadelphia Mint (-P).

    No problem! I'll bring them to the blocks release along with your pins. :)

    And yep, the dollar coins is a total backburner collection for me too, but I figured I'd throw it out there just in case someone happens to have one of my missing ones.

    I take it that for folks who have not specified, either P or D is acceptable? I have quite a few of these and will see who I can help out as soon as I go through them in the next couple of days (might be the weekend). I think I can largely cover most if not all, as long as you don't care, or are good with P (being an East Coaster).

    Since they're identical except for the mint letter on the front, I don't mind which mint it's from.

    I don’t mind which mint either. Getting tired of inspecting every quarter I come across for the ones we missed 6 years ago!
