While the 1998 quarter is not known for its many errors, it does have one. This error is known as a Huge Broad Strike. This error happens when the die collar holding the planchet in place is missing. This results in the coin’s widening and not fitting perfectly. Coin collectors can find this error in one of the coin’s four corners. Here are some examples. Read on to learn more about this error.
The 30th Statehood quarter is a favorite of collectors and coin enthusiasts. The design is a cow, a round of cheese and an ear of corn. However, some quarters produced in Wisconsin have an extra leaf on the cornstalk. Depending on the size, these coins can fetch $5-35. Another less-known error is the 2007 Wyoming Double Die Reverse. Minted in Philadelphia, this type of error is more difficult to spot, but it’s worth a look. The doubling around the saddle horn is often inconsistent in quality, so value is unknown.
Despite their rarity, statehood quarters remain a valuable part of America’s coin collection. However, the difficulty of finding these statehood quarters is high. They’re even harder to find because billions of state quarters were minted. Keep your eyes peeled and never give up! Your patience will pay off. A quarter containing an error could easily be worth hundreds of dollars, so don’t give up!
Although there are fewer errors than regular coins, there’s still a huge demand for them. A well-crafted error coin can command several hundred dollars. Below, we list the most common types of error coins and their approximate values. You can also check out the values of other similar errors. There are several types of error coins, but not all of them are valuable. For instance, there’s the 1999 Delaware Spitting Horse Error, which is the result of a crack in the die in the Philadelphia mint. The extra metal in the horse’s mouth creates a look like it’s spitting.
Other types of 1998 quarter errors are known as broadstruck and damaged coins. These coins are more valuable than average, as they don’t have any ridges on their edges. Also, these coins are wider and flatter than the ordinary ones. They often have the retaining collar, so the coin’s thickness remains the same. You can also find some very valuable broadstruck coins by examining the images of these coins in the coin’s hologram.
