As befits such a diverse nation, the designs on the 50 State Quarters varied wildly in quality. Some states commissioned graceful, meaningful images from talented artists. Some just popped in a royalty-free clip art CD, got bored after half an hour at Illustrator, and called it done. Aw, but ain't that America?

Below you'll find details from eight quarters, depicting history and industry, heritage and livestock. Can you name the states they represent?

2, 6, and 7 were pretty obvious (especially 6). I guessed right on 1 and wrong on 3 (Oregon was a good guess!).

Just got back from the Hospital. 8 stitches in my right hand. Did it trying to find State Quarters lost in the Sofa. All's I found was a broken spring. Really wish it was a Battle Scar from opening a Burgandy Olfactory Center

Well, possibly only obvious if you're a fan of Hawaii 5-O because they show the statue at least 5 times every episode.
