Rare Wisconsin Quarter Hanging Out In Your Change Jar Could Be Worth $6,000
If you’re like me, you tend to toss your change in a jar in the bedroom. Now, hopefully you didn’t bring that jar down to the coin exchange thing at a Fort Myers Publix one night when you needed beer money. Because we just learned about a coin that could be worth thousands. The coin you’re looking for is a 2004 Wisconsin state quarter. With one very specific error.

According to PCGS, the one you’re looking for has an extra leaf. “There were two different varieties discovered for the “Wisconsin Extra Leaf Quarters.” One of them being the “Low Leaf” variety, which is the most common of the two. The second variety is the “High Leaf” variety, which is the scarcer of the two. Each variety has an extra husks on the left side of the corn, which are not visible on regular Wisconsin quarters.”

Now, if you have a 2004 Wisconsin quarter in your possession, here’s what you may have. the New York Post reports “A 2004 Wisconsin quarter with an extra “low leaf” was auctioned for a record $6,000 in January 2020 while a 2004 Wisconsin quarter with an extra “high leaf” was auctioned for a record $2,530 in July 2006.”

Here’s what the “extra leaf” looks like:


If you have this Wisconsin quarter, congrats! You may have just paid your rent with a single coin!

You’ll need to get it graded and appraised. Good thing you didn’t dump that quarter into the vending machine at work to score a bag of Miss Vickie’s Jalapeno chips. Also, if you have any $2 bills or wheat pennies stashed, here’s what to look for on those.

As kids, we thought coin collecting was for nerds. But hoarding coins can pay. You just need to know what you’re looking for. This Tik Tok account has a lot more.
