    This South Carolina state quarter reminds me of Saudi Arabia! idixpdvqov351.png

    Hey, hey!!! LOL…. I never noticed that before. That is eerily similar.

    Wow! @JayAg47, you are very perceptive. As someone who collects Saudi coins, I enjoyed seeing the comparison. There is nothing new in this world!

    To be fair, we've been using the Palmetto as our state symbol since the Revolutionary War.

    Those two crossed swords look like they are going to cut the palm tree down. You have a very keen eye, thanks for sharing them.

    I was asked if I believe that people are bored during the pandemic? I said no. After reading through this thread I’d say Yes, absolutely :-D

    I'm a Saudi coin fan myself. Any recent pickups?

    Yet another reason, along with the racism and low education standards, to feel humiliated about being from here.

    Why would I feel humiliated to be from South Carolina because my state is roughly triangular? That's like saying you're ashamed of Florida because its a peninsula and looks like a wiener. Makes absolutely no sense at all.

    I wasn’t referring to the shape or size. I enjoy the weather and the outdoors.

    Look, places are like families. There is no such thing as a perfect example. We do have a beautiful state here. After being all over the world I chose to make this state home because of the heart and soul I feel that exists here. No such thing as a perfect place. It is what you make of it….. However the gnats really stink….

    The mosquitoes could be the state bird too. I agree that this is generally a good place, I’ve stayed here for 50 years, but there’s a lot to be concerned about. Looking at the state stats on corruption in police depts, education, and our history is pretty depressing to be honest. Being rural does have its peaceful perks tho.

    I've always loved South Carolina. Many vacations there. I hated every time we had to leave. First time I ever had hot boiled peanuts and goat milk fudge, too, and can't say I didn't like it! Ran up on the vendor right on the roadside. :)

    History is just that. History…. And we have a rich and diverse history here. Frankly, that was my main attraction to the state. No, it isn’t all a proud history, but it all works together to make us who we are. Heck, there are parts of my history that I am not proud of, but I know it all worked together to make me the person that I am now.
