Review:State quarters - Florida
Aaaaaaaahhhhhh! Watch out, Ponce de León!!!
Seriously, though, the Space Shuttle is cool enough by itself, and since all launches of the Shuttle take place in Florida, that image alone would have been more than adequate to represent the state on the quarter design. There really was no need to add in a Spanish ship of exploration, and there certainly wasn't a need to arrange the two vessels to make it appear they were about to crash into each other.
And one more thing: When has the Space Shuttle ever had windows for passengers like an airliner? That sad detail helped push this rating into the "bad" territory.
Overall rating - 1 - Bad
