2019 W Washington Quarter. Got it at Chick-fil-a, I think. Sorry for the blurry pics, my hands are shaking pretty fair tonight.

    Nice find

    @jesbroken... Very nice find Jim... I am still looking for my first W quarter in change... As I have mentioned before, I found one in a Coinstar reject slot.... However, I shop with cash a lot, and still not one W quarter in change. Cheers, RickO

    Like mentioned before, I think that most of the larger cities got them for some reason. I've never seen coinage issued so sporadically. Even Denver and San Francisco issues make it here somewhat more quickly than they used to, but not W's. Good luck to all hunting.

    @jesbroken - One thing is for sure. No doubt in my mind, you had to look at it 4 or 5 times, your heart skipped a beat and it kinda took your breath away for a second!.........Didn't it? Be honest.

    Screw the quarter. You have a CHICK-FIL-A near you……lucky bastard.

    Oops you are wrong, Beckley, WV has 3. My sister lives in Kingsport, TN and they have one. This past year it was torn down and completely rebuilt for 6 months. She almost went nuts. They did one of ours the same way, but we had others. Unfortunately, it's worse, than you would think, to have 3 and cannot eat there due to the salt.

    Pretty much. So crazy to get so excited about something of totally non numismatic importance. I can associate it with finding a 1909 Lincoln in the 50's in similar condition. No S's but an 09 nonetheless. Crazy days in coin collecting.

    Wait a minute, did someone say: non numismatic importance? I'm going to make believe I didn't hear that!! 🤣
