Have you ever ever heard this expression?

And if so, What state do you live in?

Today, a friend of mine, used the expression "case quarter."  I had never in my 67 years heard that expression before! Just wondering if it's a common expression where you live? 🤔

Never heard of it; don't know what it means.  I live in Pennsylvania.

I've never heard that expression. I can't even guess what it's supposed to mean, either.

Never heard that one. I'm from CT, and I've lived in FL for 16 years.

I was not familiar with that expression, so I Googled it, and chuckled at the explanation; a 25-cent piece. Not a combination of coins equally 25 cents.😁

@Starpolisher   I never heard of it so I Googled it.

 

I understand it is a 25 cent piece, a quarter as oppossed to 2 dimes and a nickel.

How did your friend use it? In what context? 

 

Did your friend tell you what it means?

 

I've heard the expression of being quartered, which meant to be cut up, whether physically or metaphorically.

Re: Have you ever ever heard this expression?

I was curious, with interesting findings.  Seems it may have originated from British and Australian slang, where a 'caser' is another name for a crown. Which is a single coin of 5 shillings.  We co-opted the expression to identify our single 25-cent piece.
