Day 138

Ooh, a Denver Mint sign!

August 11th, 2010

You don't see these much back East.


  1. Michael in Atlanta says:

    LOLLOLOLOL. Now lets see you find Philadelphia or San Francisco.

  2. Martha says:

    We have an overflow of them in our little Georgia town-wish they would take them down as quickly as they install them.

  3. Don in Tennessee says:

    I truly wish I could say we did not have these signs in TN during elections. They are everywhere you look and they are tacky and some are not taken down for months after elections. We just had a primary in our County last week and I think most are still up.

    I call this sign pollution!!!

  4. Ruthie in CA says:

    Don in Tennessee…I agree sign pollution…there oughta be a law!

    • deanna valenti meyer says:

      Agreed…there is WAY too many signs up. Maybe we should be like England…where you only get 90 days TOTAL to do your politicking.

      Michael…I chuckled when I saw Matt’s comment and then you followed up with yours!!! In my head I thought, is it a “commemorative” sign from the mint? (like the quarters) :)

  5. Dorinda from Mentor, Oh. says:

    The only ordinances I know of around here, maybe it’s national-don’t know, but the signs can only go up 30 days prior to an election and then are supposed to come down right after the election. From what I understand is they have a certain amount of time and then they can be fined. But I agree with the “pollution” of it all.

  6. dr. doolittle says:

    should be one week before a election and down the next day. Signs don’t vote…..if you get out you will be seen

  7. Donna in Texas says:

    In Harris County (Houston area) I believe they have to get them down about 7 days after the election or they are fined. It seems to be working because very few are left up. I was really glad when they passed that one.

  8. Barbara Kiviat says:

    So clever.

  9. Josh says:

    OK, so I’m probably the dumbest person here. Can someone tell me what the joke is? Still don’t get it!

  10. Wilma says:

    I got this immediately. My husband is a coin collector! I have followed Matt since the end of June. What a journey! I live in West Virginia, but have traveled in every state he has been through except North Dakota. I will be sorry to see his “walk” come to an end.

  11. Robert says:

    I’m not getting the whole Denver thing either.

  12. Janine says:

    Oooo! I got it! Like money! I feel so smart.
