You see a lot of different things up on the auction block on Ebay even a quarter from 1970. That’s right, a quarter. What makes it so special? This particular 1970 quarter was unintentionally printed over a 1941 Canadian quarter.
According to CBS News, Mike Byers Inc., the Ebay seller says “there is a significant amount of detail on both sides showing the design of the Canadian quarter.” He has the quarter listed at the price of $35,000.
It’s really uncertain how many 1970 quarters were printed with the same error.

After seeing this story last night I went through all our change jars to see if we had one of these 1970’s quarters. Out of all the change we have saved, I found one from 1970 and well, as my luck would have it it was just a plain quarter, so I gotta keep saving my change.
