A very nice kid at the library helped me with my photo copies the other day. Once he found out I'm from the states, he asked if I would mind trading one of my quarters for a Canadian quarter. It's not the best trade (currency rate wise), but he told me he only needs a few more to complete his collection of all 50 states and I'm a sucker for people with funny accents. I pulled out my change, but he already had the coins I had in my possession. So I told him it was my goal to get him those quarters.

I mean, he was nice, and his hair and stylish outfits reminded me of the old House Party movies starring Kid n Play.

This is where I'm asking for help. It's a little bit hard for me to search through quarters when I'm handling foreign monies. So I'm wondering if any of you out there want to help me with this small act of kindness by pulling out your change jars.

I am looking for 5 quarters from Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Alaska, Idaho, and Illinois. 

I'd be more than happy to pay you back when I return to the states and cover shipping costs.

I bought $10 worth of quarters for you and out of that I only found Alaska. One down and 4 to go. Will try again.
