These are quarters that could be worth up to $2,500: How do I know if I have one?

Here’s how to tell if you have one of these unique coins that collectors are offering lots of money for.

Así son las monedas de 25 centavos que podrían valer hasta $2,500 dólares: ¿Cómo saber si tengo una?

Extra money never hurts anyone... And what better way to make a few thousand dollars than with a simple quarter.

American collectors are said to be willing to pay up to $2,500 at auction for a 25-cent coin due to a small detail: a printing error on one side of the coin made almost 20 years ago.

How do I know if I have one of these special coins?

The printing error is in a series of 25-cent coins issued in 2004 in the state of Wisconsin.

The main print on the coin is a cow, accompanied by cheese and an ear of corn. These images sit under the legend “Forward ”. The key detail detail is in the open leaves of the corn ear.

Commonly, the cob has two open leaves, however, due to the error, there are certain coins that instead of two open leaves, have three.

Despite the fact that this coin can be worth thousands of dollars at auctions and pawnshops, the truth is that not everyone pays for its true value and many sellers end up selling the coins below their real prices, so we recommend you go to a specialist on the subject to avoid scams.
