Error Quarter

Do you have an error coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Statehood quarters are the most collectible current coins in the market. Error coins are the newest of the collectible trends. Combine them both and you got something special but is it valuable.

I found this in my change about a 2 years or more back. It is a South Carolina quarter 2000P with an off-center error.

Obverse

Reverse

When I first found it the only reference I had was the back of the U.S. Coins Red Book which at the time listed it at $150, today's Red Book has it for $175 but this is for 20% off center. I bought a guide book on errors and it showed how to measure your off-centerness. I estimated this coin at no more then 15% without being 100% sure.

Recently I stumbled upon a site http://error-coins.com/ that I could ask better experts than me to evaluate this and a copper dime. The site admin said this...
The South Carolina quarter looks to be about 10% off-center. It's worth around $50.
I trust this judgment.

The copper dime is still an unknown error so I'll blog about it later when I can weigh it.

Back to error quarters there are 8 common types of error and depending on the state and rarity affects the value. If I chose to sell this the same time I found it I could have gotten more due to low reporting but as more are found the value went down. This always something to think about with error coins.

Here's the stats for a normal South Carolina P quarter....
Year: 2000P
Metal: 91.67% Copper 8.33% Nickel
Mintage: 742,576,000
Value: AU-50 $0.35 (AU=about uncirculated)

401 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:

it's a 1998P Dime that is off-center about 50%

Would like to know value.

Have pictures but I don't know how to attach them here.

Man said...

To post pictures just host them on a free site like http://imageshack.us/ and then just copy and paste the link.

1998P dime 50% off-center
It should go for about $50.00 in uncirculated. If it gets certified at MS-64(near perfect) or better it can go for $200 or more.

Let's say it has lots of scratches and looks circulated then no more then $20.00.

"Error indian head penny"

These are not true errors and were probably done to promote something.

During fairs in the 1800's coins were pressed with other symbols and sold as souvenirs but I don't recognize these.

No extra value, sorry.

This is an error but it is a common error. Unless the die crack is from rim to rim and big or 4 or more little cracks then it has no extra value.

Hi, I have a 1987 Quarter, if you look at it straight on, the L in Liberty is visable the rest of the letters are only visable when tilting the coin. Also the 9 in 1987 is completly gone. I don't think it's due to wear as the coin still has a perfect edge rim. Any help on it. Thanks

This is a Struck through grease error. It is a common error and rarely worth more then a few cents over face value.

This is a Die Break Error if this is a regular quarter then it would start at $5.00 and goes up to $75.00.

If this is a state quarter it starts at $20 and and goes up to $150.00.

Value depends on how big the metal is and lowers if the date is covered.

These are also known as cud.

Missing Clad Layer error it happens when the nickel layer comes off then it gets stamped. It should weigh less than a normal quarter.

Man said...

Do not clean it at all.
If your sending it for grading no cleaning is recommended. You may want to email the grading company and tell them about the dirt and if there is something they can do but it's best to leave it alone.

PCGS is the best company for these errors. It should be about $1,000.00 in fine.
As far as I know missing both layer is very rare and most have been faked. Most people believe it's impossible so that is why I said no cleaning. Any little mark me be considered a tampering mark.

Let the grading company decide but before then you may want to weight it. It should be 4.7 grams or less if real.

Anonymous said...

Thank you for the advise on the double red quarter. It is much appreciated. Will weigh it soon and e-mail grading company. Thank you again.

It's possible.
One thought is a Lamination error where the entire front falls off but there still is an outline. Weighing it will confirm this type of error.

If you can take a good photo of both sides that may help.

If two coins were stamped at once then one side would be blank but very distorted.

Trust your gut and keep the coin safe until someone can review it in hand.

I'm not sure what you are trying to say.

If you mean the coin is cut or stamped wrong or off-center it's about $50.00.

If you mean the coin is normal but the words are missing it is a Struck Through Grease error no extra value.

This is either a Weak Strike or Die Adjustment either way it has little to no extra value. Only if 95% of the design is missing does it have real value.

There are several possibilities like fake, Off-Metal, or Missing Clad-Layer.

The only way to know what you have is to weigh it. If it is 2.5 grams it is a fake silver-plated cent with no value.
Any other weight has to double checked by an expert in person.

I found a South Carolina P quarter that has no red metal sandwiched between the two regular outer layers. (It the solid white metal.) It also seems to be a tiny fraction thicker than a regular South Carolina P quarter, and the letters and pictures seem to be a tiny bit bolder, like it was struck harder than the rest. It also seems a tiny bit heavier than the regular quarter. Is it a real quarter or counterfeit, and if real, how much do you think it would be worth? It is in good condition.

Man said...

You need to get an exact weight.

If it is a Silver Quarter it would have an S not P and weigh 6.25 grams. Any silver error would be worth thousands.

A regular quarter weighs 5.67 grams and if plated with silver (by an outside company) would stay the same weight and bring no extra value.

Other possibilities are off-metal errors but the only way to know is getting the exact weight.

Hi, I have a canadian penny but a quarter is printed on it. We can see the A D A from Canada, the date 1985 and a moose. On the back, we see Elizabeth's face. Some of the letters from the D G REGINA are missing due to the penny being too small. I wanted to know if it's worth anything.

This could be a Double Denomination that could be worth thousands but it must be verified in person.

If the Quarter design is indented it maybe a fake made by squishing a quarter into a cent.

This sounds like on of the Colourised Series where the back should have a painting of either a hockey team or some kind of Occasion. The paint is very easily rubbed off.
Were it intact with one of the 14 designs it would be about $20.00.
But since it is damaged it would be about $2.00 maybe more if is in great condition.

That is not a double struck it is a Struck Through Greases error with Dropped Letters.

I've never seen one like this.
Usually a dropped letter is just one letter not the entire motto.

A single dropped letter quarter sold for $500 this one is ten times better.
Please contact either PCGS.com for grading or

It is a remarkable coin if confirmed.

Yes, what happens is grease fills the coin and die, then it picked up and dropped on the coin.

Georgia state quarter, on the obv. the only thing visible is washingtons face, and IN GOD. Is this a filled die or maybe adjustment strike ????
If just the front the filled die error with no extra value, if the back is also weak it may be a die adjustment strike worth more but it depends on eye appeal to get value, generally $50 or less.


Also, a 2010 penny that looks like a copper penny on both sides.
Sounds normal.

I have 3 possibly valuable coins. One is a Canadian 5 cent coin from 2006 that doesn't have the maple leaf mintmark but rather a couple of lines crossing each other.The second one is a almost mint state 1959 P cent from the US. The third one is a 2001 P dime. The 1 is barely visible. I wanted to post pictures but my camera makes the coins look fuzzy

Struck through grease error, no extra value.

I have a 1954 quarter which has a head on both sides of the coin. How much is it worth? I also have a 1937 liberty half dollar which the eagle on the back is stamped upside down. Is this worth anything. I have 3 buffalo nickels which have the same type of defect.

1954 quarter which has a head on both sides of the coin.
Not possible, probably a magician's coin they are common and have no extra value above silver content.

1937 liberty half dollar which the eagle on the back is stamped upside down. Is this worth anything. I have 3 buffalo nickels which have the same type of defect.
I suspect these are either altered or you may be confused about coin alignment.
If these are true rotated reverse errors the would start at $250.00 each.

If you had a more accurate scale it would help.
A normal quarter weighs 5.67 grams.

I suspect yours is a plated normal quarter with no extra value.

About $40.00 for silver content. The rest is considered damage, the amount of gold is too little to raise value.

These coins are novelty and not true collectibles.

Hi I have a 2009 H canadian quarter im pretty sure its a error on the side with the moose in a exact half circle that gose across the neck of the moose (giving it a perfect coller) and continues throug the date to the right side antler are a set of lines les then 1 millemeter apart and only on the raised part of the coin. I have examined under a 10x jeweler loop and as far as i can tell its one single strike that made this mark there is no scratchs on the quarter to indicate it being done after minting there is no protursion on the opisite side of the coin like there would be if it was done by a punch.

To me it sounds like damage, the closest error I can imagine is a Die Clash error which would be part of the design when the die smashes into each other. Then later every coin gets a piece of this error design.
Even if Die clash it has no extra value.

Try taking a picture of it just in case it is something else.

Odd. First it should be 2001 if N.Carolina.

This could be damaged, no extra value.
If this was a Struck Through error the other side would be normal but if someone to a hammer to one side the other gets bent also.

If you still think it is a true error place a picture online somewhere and link it here.

Most likely it is a hub doubling or die clash or even a die break error, all no extra value.

To be sure find a local dealer who can give you an opinion. It is not worth spending money to grade. You can try taking a good picture posting it somewhere and linking it here also.

A normal N.C. quarter should say "FIRST FLIGHT".
If yours says something different it has been altered and has no extra value.

Not true.

I have book, magazines, and links to every possible variety the one you mentioned is not listed.

If you have read this online please share the link.

That said all state quarters have been found with errors but the most valuable is from Wisconsin that had an "extra leaf". But none ever had extra words.

Sounds like a Struck Through error.
These have to be graded to be certain. While most Strike Through error are caused by grease some are struck through fabric leaving odd patterns.
If that is yours it starts at $100 in high grade. But a lot depends on eye appeal.

I have a kansas state quarter that seems like it was strangely squished during printing. It is very hard to read anything on it and the copper later seemed to have oozed out, and formed a thick smooth ring around the edge. It is also smaller than a regular quarter. Any idea what this might be worth.

Sounds damaged, no extra value.

But it could be an off-metal error, can you weigh it?

Anonymous said...

To man. It can't be damaged, its too smooth, and in really good shape. I don't really have means to accurately weigh it. The best way to describe it is, that when it was being printed, the copper layer was forced out of the edges and encapsulated the rim. And the faces of the coin are almost blank.

It can be damaged either by being smashed or a technique called spooning. I have seen it before and it leaves everything very smooth.

I understand about the scale problem I had a odd coin and it took me 2+ years before finding a good scale. Keep the coin safe and wait to get access to a useful scale.

Man said...

2007 D nickel that I beleive is a clad error. It is a bronze color on both sides.

Not possible clad error since no nickels are made of clad metals.

It could be one of two errors:
1) Off-Metal error, weigh it to find out
2) Copper-wash or improperly sintered error, this has to be verified by an expert.

Weighing it is the best place to start.

Shane, I would also add it might be a plated fake which happens a lot.

Not a Die Crack error.
This is a Lamination error or Cracked Planchet.

It can also be damage but let's assume it is an error.
The problem is that the cent looks harshly cleaned which leaves it at little to no value.

If it wasn't cleaned it would start at $15.00 and depending on eye appeal it could go higher.
