Letter

Dear Ms. Fore:

At its 20 November meeting, the Commission of Fine Arts reviewed reverse designs for the 2005 California and West Virginia commemorative/circulating quarters. The results were as follows:

California: The Commission preferred design #5, which featured the Golden Gate Bridge. It was recommended, however, that the trees on both sides be removed, leaving just the poppies.                                         

West Virginia: The unaninmous choice here was design #4, the New River Gorge. No changes were recommended.

Sincerely,
/s/
David M. Childs
