The Ohio Quarter

The Ohio quarter, the second quarter of 2002 and seventeenth in the series, honors the state's contribution to the history of aviation, depicting an early aircraft and an astronaut, superimposed as a group on the outline of the state. The design also includes the inscription "Birthplace of Aviation Pioneers."

The claim of this inscription is well justified -- the history-making astronauts Neil Armstrong and John Glenn were both born in Ohio, as was one of the inventors of the airplane. Ohio was also the site of the 1906 flyer's development and testing.
