It Was New Jersey

I have a confession to make: I'm doing an unbelievably dorky thing and saving state quarters. There's no reason for it or expectation of value, it's just something I'm doing for my own amusement. The Wife humors me and lets me inspect her quarters from time to time.

I know from the U.S. Mint's website that 42 quarters have been released, and I have 37 of them right now. So I took a look at what I had last night and I tried to run down which of the five I don't have. I identified Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Michigan, and Washington as missing but I spent all morning trying to figure out the last one. I had to cheat and look on the website to remember... New Jersey.

Well, hey, anyone could have made that mistake of forgetting New Jersey!
