On this, the 230th anniversary of the signing of our Declaration of Independence, it is fitting that while searching my pocket change I found a Bicentenial Washington Quarter. Remember, this quarter was issued in 1975 and 1976 with the dual date 1776-1976. The reverse features a colonial drummer boy designed by artist Jack L. Ahr. Ahr’s design was selected amongst 12 semi-finalists. He was awarded $5,000 for the design.
On this Day of Independence, I wish those in the military who are helping others gain and maintain their Independence best wishes and a safe return home.
