Dear Sir or Madam,
I figured someone likely monitors the email address firstname.lastname@example.org, so I thought I’d send you this idea.
I went to Home Depot today and took this picture with my cell phone, this is likely the cheapest of the steel flat washers, and note the price of 12 US Cents each!
We both understand our US currency is becoming near worthless, and we all know that the good people who work at the US Mint had no part in devaluing our currency to the point of making fools out of the people stupid enough to have saved it.
I’d like to be constructive from this point forward and offer a suggestion that would add a lot of value to our US Currency and greatly lower the cost of making it.
All you need do (to start) is quit making the US penny and instead use the very inexpensive to make steel quarter-inch flat washer. There’s no need to make it fancy, no need to give it that fake copper color of the new Penny.
Imagine.. a cheaper to make coin that has about 12 times the value of the US One Cent Coin! I hope you give my idea serious consideration, our currency is an embarrassment, a lot of people won’t even stoop over to pick up a penny, but a Steel flat washer.. well, that’s becoming down right expensive to buy with US currency. Once you get the penny replaced, there’s plenty of room to replace the 5 Cent Coin with another Flat Washer, maybe you can use the three eights, or even the five sixteenths flat washer?
Thanks for Listening…….
