Please send cash (just quarters)

This summer at a family reunion we started our nephew from Germany on the path of collecting all the US state quarters. It’s a great way to learn about the 50 US states and he was excited to get started. What I didn’t realize is that the books are made to collect state quarters from the Philadelphia and Denver mints — the small set of quarters we had set aside to get him started wasn’t even close to what was needed. We’ve made some progress, but could use help.

If you have any quarters that match what’s listed below, please let me know.
