Wisconsin Quarter Misprint Errors

Email This Entry

Posted by Adam Viener

Tracking keyword trends with tools such as Wordtracker can be interesting. Yesterday I noticed that the top word being searched for was Wisconsin Quarter. A quick search on Google showed that an NPR article indicated that there was a misprint on some Wisconsin Quarters making an undetermined number of them worth up to $500. That's a great return on investment for a quarter.

This should turn into a hot news topic as well as a hot auction item, perfect for online auctions.

Lynn,

Appreantly the Wisconsin quarter missprints have to do with the stalk of corn on the tails side.

Some of the misprinted Wisconsin error quarters have been turning up around Tucson, Ariz., and San Antonio, Texas, with what appears to be an extra leaf on the left hand side of the corn stalk.

There appears to be two versions of misprints, one with an extra leaf of the stalk point up and one with an extra leaf pointing down to the left.

You can find some pictures at the following sites:

on the Wisconsin quarter, what does it mean when it seems to be the number "1" across from the leaf, not a leaf of mistake?
