I still maintain it would be better if the PM button was at the top of the page, next to quote and amend, and clearly marked PM it would be a vast improvement.

My son-in-law collects quarters. He has an enormous number. I don't know this for sure but I think they are probably only worth 25 cents each. If he ever gets to own every one issued ( :lol: ) they would undoubtedly be worth more.
According to Wikipedia
The 50 State Quarters Program (Pub.L. 105–124, 111 Stat. 2534, enacted December 1, 1997) was the release of a series of circulating commemorative coins by the United States Mint. From 1999 through 2008, it featured each of the 50 U.S. states on unique designs for the reverse of the quarter.
The 50 State Quarters Program was started to support a new generation of coin collectors, and it became the most successful numismatic program in history, with roughly half of the U.S. population collecting the coins, either in a casual manner or as a serious pursuit.The U.S. federal government so far has made additional profits of $3.0 billion from collectors taking the coins out of circulation.
