    Arizona State Quarter Error

    On Monday I bought some loose halves, and the teller gave me 2 quarters in change. When I got out to the car, I looked at them and they were both Arizona quarters. Since she gave them to me out of a new clear plastic roll, so I went back in and bought the rest of the roll. She transferred them into a paper roll, and since they all looked MS condition I cringed thinking she might scuff them.

    Finally checked them today, and found one of the extra cactus (top of the cactus and above the 20 in the date). In the photo the one on top is the error coin. I'm thinking of getting it certified by PCGS. Would it be worth it?

    well that cool! I'd check ebay and see how much they go for, then determine if it'd be worth having it verified.

    It looks like a cud. Check out the same coin at the large cactus (in the crook of the one arm), there is also something extra there.

    A quick Feebay search shows around $150 - $200 minimum for the certified ones.

    I need to start looking for these as well. What other state quarter errors are out there? I'm aware of the extra corn frond, but wasn't aware of this one.

    Those are the only two that I know of off the top of my head. I've only searched a couple of quarter boxes, as I mainly search half dollars. I had done a google search a while back, and the Wisconsin & Arizona ones were the two that "everyone" was talking about. HH

    I have found two of the Wisconsin errors. One upper leaf and one lower leaf. Both in boxes. Didn't KNOW about the arizona. Now I need to look for those TOO. :-)

    I just looked on ebay. there are a LOT of them on the site for $0.99. One guy sold 120 of them so far at $1.55 with free shipping, and still has more left. (See his ad below) But it looks like they are not giving good value like the Wisconsin leaf errors. Take a look at ebay yourself. :-(

    There is the Kansas "humpback" bison. I found one of those in my change last year. There is also the Kansas hoof mark on the bison's hind leg. There are also the Minnesota extra tree varieties. Those are the ones that I know of.

    Shame on me. I had looked it up on my eBay app on my phone when I in the car, and had mistyped the state. I just checked the history on the app and I had typed Wisconsin instead of Arizona. Apparently the Arizona one was more common. I guess I had Wisconsin on my mind when I looked it up yesterday.

    Oh well, at least I found an error coin. Back to my halves boxes. HH

    I got the Wisconsin extra leaf quarter back as change at a drive thru a few years ago. I cleaned it up and sold it on ePay for $140.

    Don't clean coins!
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.
