We all have loose change sitting around, despite our promises to ourselves to roll ’em and bring ’em to the bank–or at least deposit them in one of those sorting machines. And while it’s no surprise that many 200-year-old coins are worth more than the standard value, some 1970 quarters could be worth far more than 25 cents.
How much more? How about a yearly salary’s worth!
AOL.com discovered an eBay listing for a 1970 quarter with a sale price of $35,000. And there are actually 22 people interested in paying that amount for a 25-cent piece!
The reason: Some of these quarters were formed over 1941 Canadian quarters, and the error is slightly visible.
Just above the word “DOLLAR” are the upside-down markings of the year, 1941. You can see it more clearly here in this ebay listing.

It’s unlikely that one of these high-value quarters is in your junk drawer, but hey, you never know.
