Error Finds Bring Thrills

New Hampsire quarter with clad layer missing

I purchased a 2000 New Hampshire quarter – clad layer missing – for our company’s exhibit of New Hampshire Statehood quarters here in Littleton.

While I was touring our packaging room the other day, one of our eagle-eyed employees said “Dave, look at this!” and held up – you guessed it – a New Hampshire quarter – clad layer missing! Oh well – now the firm has two for our display!

It’s always fun to find something valuable. Errors are one of the few things left that you still have a chance of finding in circulation. Of course, our staff has a better chance than most, handling millions of new coins every year. If you go through millions of coins, you deserve to find something!
