    I wouldn't want to steal this without giving someone else the chance.
    I'm really after the two "very rare" circulated 1965 quarters.

    I never post these kind of things, but sometimes I feel like I just have to. ;)

    Well, let's see if anyone bites for the 29 bucks. What happened to that coin?
    It's unbelievable to see some of these outrageous listings.

    ...that will hopefully eliminate some of the competition.

    What happened to that coin is it was colored that way to be used in the juke box at a bar. The juke box would be leased from an outside company that would get a percentage of the profits. If the proprietor wanted to give someone a "free play" he would use a colored quarter. When settling up with the vendor the colored quarters would be removed before tallying the cut so that the bar wouldn't lose a percentage on their own money.

    Just to expand on that, one of the EMS stations I was assigned to was just down the road from a car wash. The owner of that business told us to get a roll of quarters, and paint them red. Use the painted ones in the car wash. When he emptied the boxes, he'd return the red quarters to us, so essentially we got "life-time" ambulance washes for a total investment of $10. Quite a few business do this.

    I should buy this. The price is great for such a rare coin, and it'll go great with my blue quarter!

    I wrote to the seller and asked:

    And the seller wrote back:
