You might have in your pocket or purse a state quarter that's worth a mint:

The following graphic shows you what to look for:

The bidding's at almost $500 for this quarter on eBay:

Cool!

From the MPR story I heard this morning, all of the flawed coins came from the mint in Denver, as far as they know... which explains why they're being found in Arizona and Texas, apparently. If we'll see one actually in circulation around here, who knows.

We'll have to see just how rare this variety ends up being, now that many people are aware of it and will be checking their pocket change for them.

There have historically been many coins struck with more than one design variety, but this one apparently wasn't authorized by the US Mint, which could potentially make them more valuable-- especially if not many were minted.

I know that name, but I don't get the reference-- who's New Miss Mania?

"New Miss Mania" is also a series of caches by KB. But you knew that already, right? Laughing
