Did the discovery of plain-edge Washington dollar errors have any impact on collector purchases of bags and rolls from the Mint? You might think so, but when you look at the data, it looks more like a puzzle than an answer.

Washington state quarters have gone on sale in bag and roll quantities. Opening purchases seem strong in the first week, equaling more than 50 percent of the total sales of Montana already.
