Did you know?… There are several kinds of errors on Wyoming quarters that relatively few people know about.
These error coins are worth a significant sum of money.
In 2007, the Wyoming quarter was released as part of the 50 State Quarters program — which spanned from 1999 through 2008 and became one of the most popular and ambitious commemorative coin programs the United States Mint ever released.
Some 50 State Quarters were made with errors or varieties, and among these are the Wyoming quarters.
Following is a list of the Wyoming state quarter errors you should be looking for and what they’re worth if you find one…
How Much Are Wyoming State Quarters With Errors Worth?
It’s time to start searching through your loose change and bank rolls of quarters for some fun error coins.
Here’s a list of the most popular 2007 Wyoming quarter errors & varieties… and what they’re worth:
#1 – Wyoming Quarter With Doubled Die Error
Some of the 2007-P Wyoming quarters made at the Philadelphia Mint were struck with a doubled die reverse that shows some minor doubling around the saddle. Values for this doubled die coin range from $3 to $7.
#2 – Wyoming Quarter Pooping Horse Error
A little gross, maybe, but there’s an interesting die break on some Wyoming quarters between the rear of the horse and its tail that makes it look as though the horse is doing its business. (Yep… Really does look like that!) It’s just a die break — but an unfortunate one. Wyoming quarters with this strange die break (some calling it the pooping horse error) are worth $15 to $25.
#3 – Wyoming Quarter With Die Break Through Date
There’s a really peculiar die break that shows a long, crooked line from the tip of the horse’s front hoof all the way through both zeros (“00”) in the date, the “S” of “PLURIBUS,” up to the coin’s rim. Examples of this error normally sell for between $3 and $10, depending on the coin’s condition.
#4 – Wyoming Quarter With Die Cuds
Some collectors have found what appear to be die cuds (die breaks hanging off parts of the design) on Wyoming quarters. Values for these coins range are based on the size of the cud and condition of the coin. They are generally worth $2 to $5.
#5 – Other Wyoming Quarter Errors
There are other types of errors you should be looking for on Wyoming quarters, too. These types of errors can be found on any coin and aren’t particular to the Wyoming state quarter alone. Still, these are some neat errors that are worth a pretty penny and should be on your search list:
- Lamination errors — $10+
- Off-center errors — $3+
- Wrong planchet errors — $250+ (read about planchet errors)
Even if you can’t seem to find any of the Wyoming state quarter errors right away, don’t give up. They’re out there. You may not hear much about these particular error quarters, and they’re not necessarily worth a ton of money right now — but these error coins are still worth looking for.
