- State quarters? Got all but Hawaii.
- New nickels: Check (even if my dear neighbor's brother, the mayor of Seattle and namesake of this coin, disagrees with me on an important issue).
- Silver dollar with Ike? Yup.
- Bicentennial silver dollar with Ike? Yup again.
- SBA? Sacagawea? Yep, yep.
- Snazzy 1940s quarter made of actual silver? You betcha.
- Freakin' awesome Ben Franklin half dollar of same metal? Mm-hmm.
- Unsquelchable desire to see dollar bill go up in smoke and dollar coins (and twos, and fives, for that matter) take over? Yeppers.

Cash money dollar (coins) y'all
I'm a coin guy, always have been. Worst shit perpetrated on me by my dear sister and mother was their absurd and bullying insistence I trade a dollar in coins to her for a dollar bill. Why they insisted is beyond me, but it is one of the four grudges I still hold.
