I need the 2007 issue of the 50 State Quarters Greetings from America Portfolio to complete my collection. It is listed in the information above. Please asvise how it may be purchased. Linda Holt

Thomas Miffleton July 20, 2009 at 8:44 am

I placed an order for a 2008 Greetings From America Portfolio early in 2008. I was told it was on back order and would ship automatically when available. As of this writing, I am now told this item is not available. I have all the other years but my collection is incomplete because 2008 is no longer available. If someone has this year for sale, please contact me at tmiffleton@yahoo.com. If you would like to purchase the other years the same info applies. The agent from the Mint was almost rude on the phone particularly when I asked for her supervisor. I was informed there was no one in charge. Wow! Really makes you wonder who’s minding the store.

Dan Rudin July 20, 2009 at 11:30 am

Also looking for the final 5 states of the 50 State Quarters Greetings from America Portfolio to complete my set….how can this issue with stamps and coins be obtained?

Ronnie B. Good July 20, 2009 at 8:41 pm

In the magical land of e-bay all can be found. Under the buy tab just put in the key words you are looking for under coin & stamp category.

Tina S August 23, 2009 at 11:08 am

Add me to the list,. Looking for the 2008 50 state Quarters Greeting from America Portfolio coin & Stamp set. have all the rest too.

NanaKat August 27, 2009 at 6:27 pm

I had the subscription with the US Mint and noted that the 2008 Greetings from America Card Set was first listed as “Not Available” – and it showed up in the shopping cart that way. After watching it for months, I finally called the mint to ask what was happening and encountered a very rude person, as well. Following my fruitless conversation, I returned to my online account and when I checked my shopping cart, the item was no longer listed! Now, I, too would like to complete the collection which was to be my grandson’s birthday gift this year….so whatever list is going on, add me, too! Good luck to all of us.

hong September 1, 2009 at 8:30 am

I have almost same situation. only miss the 2008 50 State Quarters Greetings from America Portfolio to complete my set. I am collecting for my sister she lives oversea. I am seeking for weeks. please add me to list

Janet Wood November 17, 2009 at 10:50 pm

The US Postal Service has almost all of the 50 State Quarters Greetings from America available.
Everything except the 2008, which they said that they never had, but that US Mint reserved some for the Post Office. I called the Mint and they said this was true, but all of the 2008 has been gone since January 2009. So, if you need one of the old ones, you can call 1-800-stamps 24 or use the one line service for the US Postal Service.
Yes, I am still searching for the 2008.

Thomas Miffleton November 22, 2009 at 8:55 am

I was on the subscription list for the 2008 50 State Quarters Greetings from America Portfolio. Somehow my order was missed.I received every year except 2008. Can anyone help me find the last year of this collection? I have tried numerous dealers with no sucess.

John Hamrich November 24, 2009 at 6:11 pm

I too have experienced the same as many above. I had a subscriptions for two “Greetins From America Portfolios” and never received either. Numerous calls to the mint only ended in rude customer service personal and no answers. This is extremely disappointing as now I am stuck with two worthless incompleted porfolios and no way to finish them. What are the options at this point? I was saving these for my grandchildren. Is there a way for them to reissued? A very disgruntled user of the US Mint!

Matthew Gress September 11, 2010 at 10:42 am

We everyone, since 2008 our government has been on a quest to manipulate the free market system to ensure that the ‘powers that be’ make the most of the fear they have instilled upon the public. This case is no different. The 2008 set will start cropping up on EBAY in about as many years as it takes to make this truly valuable to people like you and I. If however, we form a coalition of the willing to fight this blatant abuse of the real people that make this country then feel free to contact me at matthewgress@yahoo.com and reference the 2008 set in the subject line- we will petition.
Power To The People!

Rita Mathews August 16, 2011 at 8:16 pm

I too need the final 2008 state set of quarters and was told they were out;
not available. Yet, they are available on ebay; at an astronomical out of sight
price. What are the many of us to do; pay that price, more than we paid for
all the other years put together, or, have an imcomplete set. Ridiculous!!

Carrie Knowlton September 13, 2012 at 4:39 pm

I’ve looked for 4 years for the “2008” 50 state quaraters greetings from America portfolio. What a shame that no-one could tell me how to purchase this final portfolio of my collection and now I do not have a complete set.

Dee April 8, 2014 at 10:13 pm

Seems like everyone is looking for the 2008 collection; however, it went out of circulation almost as soon as it went into circulation. This is a game to run up the price of the 2008 collection exorbitantly. Either one person bought most or all of them, or the US Mint is playing games. Either way, it’s ridiculous!

Eduardo Rogano January 23, 2015 at 3:19 pm

It is 2014 and I search E-bay once every 6 months for the 2008 50 State Quarters Greetings from America Coin and Stamp Card set. I just tried, as “Ronnie B. Good” above suggested and there is no such offering in the magical world of E-bay. I too need this to complete my grand-daughter’s set. Has anyone solved this puzzle ? Thank you.

John June 20, 2015 at 4:27 pm

Hello, everyone,
I am still looking for the 2008 50 State Quarters Greetings from America Coin and Stamp Card set. Is there any chance anyone can send an email to me as to where I can get the 2008 50 State Quarters Greetings from America Coin and Stamp Card set.
Thank you and good luck to all of us.

Leo August 22, 2015 at 5:12 pm

I need 3 sets of the 2008 50 State Quarters and stamp sets. Seems like everyone else does also. Has anyone had any luck recently?

NanaKat April 21, 2016 at 3:54 pm

I see that they are being sold on Ebay….wondering how they got them when those of us who had been subscribers for the whole 10 years lost out!

richard paul May 5, 2016 at 6:35 pm

Will I ever get the 2008 cards to complete the set?
This is ridiculous. I need two sets.
Where can I get them.
I think that someone dropped the ball here.
