    This turned up in a till at work. I haven't seen anything on google about this error, of the print being a little off center. Just curious if it was worth anything

    The colorization actually makes the coin damaged. You might get a few cents above face value from someone for the novelty but that’s about it.

    I don’t really see anything else that stands out about the coin.

    The colorization on the coin was done after it left the mint. So this quarter is actually considered damaged in the eyes of a coin collector.

    One other thing @sammii dont let the value stop you from collecting what you like. That’s the important part to having fun with the hobby. If you like that quarter get a flip for it and add it to the collection. In all honesty I’ve never come across one in the wild like that. If I did find one in change I’d probably keep it myself.

    Back when these state quarters came out it ignited a whole new generation of coin collectors and the curio people took full advantage. You couldn't turn on a TV without seeing somebody selling plated or colorized versions but sadly, they aren't collectible to the coin collecting world.... But I too would pull that and throw it in my "save box".... Looks like a great coin to start a collection with to me!

    It's merely a painted quarter, so it's only worth face value, as mentioned. Still a fun find in change. I'm sure the color made it stand out.

    that’s where the color was slightly misapplied. It’s just a damaged coin that makes for an interesting start to a collection.

    Some company did every state quarter and sold them for a ridiculous amount. In reality they are only worth twenty-five cents as it’s considered damaged.

    Ya I'm not a fan of colorized coins, Littleton Coin company loves to sell these and I have a couple as gifts from them (my grandmother worked there for 50 years). Looks like that one made it into circulation and got worn?
