I might have been interested if it was a clad S quarter. Plus, not sure I see these ornaments representing anything to do with Christmas. Pass as well.


Looks like something you could hang in the window too. Kids would just break them. I see no value at all in this.

Good point about hanging this in a window. Sort of a warning that you don’t walk though a sliding glass door or something similar. I don’t need one for $31


My family has no interest of coins as gifts. Many years ago, I bought a proof set for my mom. My brother returned it to me a couple of years ago. Now I have ANOTHER bicentennial proof set.


Nice tie.


It appears the Mighty Minters will have some competition this year.


this might be good for a white elephant gift exchange


2022 American Women Quarters Ornament for an ugly Christmas sweater. Maybe they prefer to keep the sweater?


Don’t give them any ideas. Seeing what over mints are offering, the possibilities are almost endless. 🙁


Must be the Rev. Ike baby Jesus. Platinum, diamonds, 500 euro bills.
