    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Hang on to any of the new Alabama quarters if you have them, they may be worth much more than 25 cents.

    The U.S. Treasury announced it is recalling all of the Alabama quarters that are part of its program featuring quarters from each state. The quarters are being issued in the order in which the various states joined the U.S. “We are recalling all the new Alabama quarters that were recently issued,” Treasury Undersecretary Jack Shackleford said Monday. “This action is being taken after numerous reports that new quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones, or other coin-operated devices.

    “The problem lies in a design flaw, “ Shackleford said. The winning design was submitted by an Auburn University student. “Apparently,” Shackleford said, “the duct tape holding the two dimes and nickel together keeps jamming the coin-operated devices.”
