Check Your Quarters for a Rare 1970’s Proof Error

As reported by MSN []

“Check your pockets, as one of a rare batch of 1970 quarters could be worth a fortune.

One of the quarters is for sale on eBay for $35,000. The listing says it was part of a group of proof coin errors that were auctioned by the state of California.

KGW-TV reports seller Mike Byers says the quarter was struck over a 1941 Canadian quarter instead of a blank due to a mint error. He says parts of the Canadian quarter can still be seen underneath the images of George Washington and the bald eagle on both sides of the coin.

The station says similar 1970 quarters are being sold for $2,500 and for $5,000 on eBay.”
