1970 Quarter
If you have a quarter from 1970, it could be worth a lot of money

It's time to look for loose change because some quarters produced in 1970 might be worth a pretty penny. A certain number of quarters produced in 1970 have a tiny misprint which makes them very valuable.

According to Good Housekeeping magazine, the coins were printed over 1941 Canadian quarters and therefore a tiny "1941" marking appears above the word "dollar" on the back of the coin. It's almost impossible to see without a little help, however bids for the coin with the mistake have topped more than $35,000 on eBay.

In another view, it looks like the faint imprint of a head can be seen on the front of the quarter, at a quarter turn rotation.

It's not clear how many coins actually have the mistake, so check your wallet and under your sofa cushions.
