You Won’t Believe What Some People Are Willing To Pay For This Quarter (PHOTOS)

Sometimes it pays to take a close look at old pocket change found lying around the house, as certain coins are extremely valuable because of their age or scarcity.

However, it may come as a surprise to learn that collectors crave some coins that were made in the recent past. Woman’s World, citing Aol.com as a source, reported that certain 1970 quarters are worth a lot more than 25 cents.

Twenty-two people responded recently when one of the coins was listed on eBay with a price tag of $35,000. What makes the coin so special is that it was formed over 1941 Canadian quarters, and the mint error is visible. By looking closely, it is possible to see an upside-down “1941” imprinted over the word “DOLLAR.”

So, before spending that change that has been gathering dust under the couch cushions or in an old box in the attic, check it out closely. Any oddity like the 1970 quarter’s error could put a lot of cash into the finder’s pocket.
