I would say no. Everyone saves them. If you happen to find some in way above average condition,then keep a few in 2x2's.

Like John said only if in excellent condition, that's no wear and no scratch's.

I can't help it. I keep every single one I come across, even the uglies.

Probably means bicentennial half dollars.

I keep them when I find them, only because they seem to be not as common in change as they used to be.

Some folks like to save the bicentennial quarters with full or mostly full drums, or those with little wear on the drum.

I keep them only if they are pristine. If you want a real nice coin buy yourself a silver bi-centenial MS69 you can usually buy them from about 15 to 30 dollars. Proofs may cost a little more.

I've been going through lots of quarters trying to complete a couple state and territories sets, and wondered the same thing.

eBay seems to show rolls of quarters going for $15 or so (plus shipping even!) so I've been keeping them just to fill out rolls, since this no effort involved to speak of.
