“You guys are the greatest. I love the magazine and can hardly wait for it to arrive each month.”

THIS VERY SPECIFIC TYPE OF QUARTER FROM 1970 IS WORTH A TON OF MONEY - You already know that some of your favorite vintage childhood toys— Beanie Babies, Barbie dolls, and Cabbage Patch Kids Dolls— could be worth a small fortune if they’re in good condition. But now there’s another seemingly ordinary thing from the 1970s that’s making headlines for its unbelievable value. Quarters— yes, the coins that are typically worth 25 cents— are finding extraordinary worth on eBay, Woman’s World reports. But there’s a key characteristic that makes a certain type of quarter extra valuable. These coins, which were all created in 1970, feature a small, almost unnoticeable mistake. The pieces of change were printed over 1941 Canadian quarters and therefore feature a teeny “1941” marking just above the word “DOLLAR” on the back of the coin. It’s almost impossible to see without a little help, but you can see the error explained in the eBay listing. You’ll also see that 26 people are interested in paying $35,000 for this one coin! (1016)
