I was digging through my stash of quarters today.

What is it about a quarter that is so special that we all keep a little trove of them?

As a child, quarters were treasured for depositing into those toy machines in the grocery stores...but only when your little hand wouldn't fit up them for a quick five-finger discount.

I think my quarter-hoarding is rooted back to the college days of needing quarters for laundry, vending machines, or saving until that wonderous day when you have four of them and can make a Wendy's run.

Just basking in the gloriousness of all things quarter - seriously, what is so magical about them?
