This site tells you where to look for the date 1941: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...ntaining-faint-trace-year-1941-goes-sale.html
thank you very much. another reason to suspect the mint has a game going to entice the general public into hording coinage from general circulation.
These were done by rogue employees trying to make a buck, not a concerted effort by the mint.
I want to know who "they're saying" is ... who is this ??
NGC has certified one coin. That's the only one I know about. I'm on my phone now. If you want the link, I'll post it when I get home.
It's a US 70-S over 41 Canadian (Quarters).
It's link 2) that I gave to the OP in my 1st reply.
They don't use Canadian coins or blanks at the US Mint. The mint worker that did that, did so illegally. Maybe there's been others but all of them would've been done illegally.
I know about the certified one.
I want to know from the OP who "they" are
who is telling them something about one .. many ?? found in circulation, in pocket change? etc etc etc .. in order to understand the source of the OPs information.
Boob tube is likely the source, leading people to believe that there are many of them to be found.
Cuz i think there's only 1 of these
But one also has to be careful as there are websites disguised as coin sites. If a website has short pieces of information surrounded by all sorts of advertisements, then skip that website address. This is something else though as it is a news website which simply grabbed content from a news distribution service.
Getting coin information from a news website you have to look at it's source.
Unfortunately this article was distributed from Tribune Media and probably written by someone that knows nothing about coins which appears that person was perusing eBay.
If you read the entire article you can start to understand some of it's obsurdity.
So you need to search for "a quarter" that currently is on "eBay".
So you are searching for something that has already been found.
"According to reports" .. do they mean according to the auction description ??
22 ppl expressed interest? like .. bidders ?
I also think in this case they wrote the article to capture readers attention, which is all used to drive traffic and hopefully advertising monies.
Stick to getting coin information from coin websites.
fyi, there are also "generated" search results which if you get stuck on those loops will provide search results "tailored to you". Tidbits of information from a secondary search cobbled together with advertisements all around with incomplete and inaccurate information.
So be careful where you get your information from.
the article was from 2016
Since it was distributed from a central news provider the same article can be found on multiple local news websites.
It must have been a slow day ... as I can't think of any other reason to peruse eBay looking for "news".
This one local news place actually did additional info gathering and talked to a local coin dealer
I do love this statement ...
