Looking for the 1970 S Washington Proof Quarter Error

A generic article about the 1970 Washington Quarter and how it could be worth many thousands of dollars. And believe us, we have many phone calls rolling in about their 1970 quarter they found in pocket change.

The ’43 and ’44 Cents

It’s that time of year… one of the popular television stations has aired a program talking about the incorrect metal errors of 1943 and 1944. In 1943, the Lincoln Cent was minted in zinc-plated steel to save copper for shells to be used in the war effort. A total of 500,000,000 were minted that year, about right for that period of mintage. They are totally common. If you have a Lincoln Wheat Cent dated 1943 that is a gray or silvery color, it is almost certainly common. I have a few in the bargain bin that have been reprocessed (replated) by a telemarketing company I will gladly sell you for $0.10 each (that’s 10 cents).
