 Feedback comes to those who apply and post and expect to receive the same when you place a silver dollar in your mouth you scratch it with your teeth to see if it is real a man bites down upon it and then looks and frowns or looks and smiles upon the quarter he has found not silver or even golden but just metal of some kind its zinc and copper mixes made in Betty Crocker's Kitchens. She has a tray of circles all lain out upon her divine divan the tails side up for luck she got this from the JESUS man who tossed his penny in an arc and tried to hit a mark a line drawn in the sand and made his feet go march to live a different plan a lifetime being mended his only love he found she makes the things he feels inside brand new. She stirs her better batter up with a long and spindly spatula she marks each coin with edges with the cheese garter greater. She takes the grater to the table and turns each coin by hand she makes four of them for every dollar in this land. They asked her who is on the image of the coin she laughed and dimpled smiling she said it must be Dollar Bill. The current clad version is cupronickel (8.33% Ni and the balance Cu), weighs 5.670 grams (0.2000 avoirdupois oz, 0.1823 troy oz), diameter 0.955 inches (24.26 mm), width 1.75 millimeters (0.069 in) with a grated edge. The George Washington Dollar is the image used for the quarter he gets to be on two. When yew become the President Of America you can be their two. She stamps the quartered dollars on the side that just says heads with the handy dandy stamper set she got from her Uncle Jed for Christmas Past. She turns the coins at last and makes the tails with her old eagle eye she uses her new leather set to scritch and scratch the bird the lines formed from habit of making millions in a set in just one day she filled the Island of Manhattan with 24 additional sets they said they needed them to buy Manhattan again the previous treaty had run out from the statue of limitations set back in Washington against the law must be obeyed by every man. When eye am making a bus ride and eye find a lot of pennies eye ignore them when eye find a quarter eye do a little more than dance in place eye jig eye jog eye trip on every log in my haste to find three more it costs one dollar just to Board the Tran. Betty declined to speak just to the press for she is very shy she said she knoes now who the image is on the flip side of her coin and eye did not keep a dry eye when she smiled at me and said without a tremor or a miss it is Washington, D. C.
