  Quarters B
Quarters B is generally believed to have been erected as a residence for the second ranking officer of the Yard, the purpose which it has served through most of its history.
Historian Taylor Peck, a normally reputable source, says that Quarters B was remodeled in 1801 from the original farm house which already stood in the Navy Yard and that its rear wall formed part of the eastern boundary wall of the Yard.
Who actually occupied Quarters B during its first decade is unknown, although physical evidence does point to the house having been divided into two quarters, and a map of 1814 identifies the northern end as being the residence of the second officer with the office of the purser and paymaster combined in the south section.

 Quarters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Quarters is a popular drinking game which involves players bouncing a quarter off of a table in an attempt to have the quarter land,usually into a shotglass (or cup) on that table.
If the quarter lands in the glass, then the shooter chooses any player in the game to take a drink, either from their own beverage, or perhaps from the glass containing the quarter.
In the baseball variation of quarters, four glasses are lined up in a row, each one slightly taller than the previous one, each marking single, double, triple, and home run.

 Errors on the State Quarters
On the Delaware quarter, this might be seen on the reverse ("tails" side) under the belly of the horse and in the fields around the horse.
Die cracks are common on quarter dollar coins and, in fact, are the number one reasons that dies are retired from service at the Mint.
Because of the short amount of time in which each state’s commemorative quarters will be struck (about 10 weeks) it is unlikely that the Mint will streamline the design of each quarter’s dies in order to prevent them from cracking.

 The Washington Quarters of 1934
Though no quarters were produced the following year, the U.S. Mint's engraving staff recognized this design flaw, and only a very small number (Breen estimated 500,000 pieces) of the 1934 Philadelphia Mint quarters were coined from obverse dies taken from this first hub.
Breen estimated that perhaps 3.4 million 1934 Philadelphia Mint quarters were made from this third hub but, as was often the case in his writing, he provided no source or reasoning for this figure.
There also appears to be no interest among collectors and dealers in distinguishing the two subtypes of 1934-D quarters, though I suspect that the more sophisticated collector is quietly seeking all five subtypes of 1934 P and D quarters.
