Still digging for that $35,000 quarter? Here's why you probably don't have it

This Quarter May Be Worth Much More Than You Think

Have you been digging for the special 1970 quarter that had a mint error?

The "1970-S Proof Washington Quarter Struck on 1941 Canada Quarter NGC PF 65," is currently listed on eBay by Mike Byers Inc., for $35,000.

However, Snopes tweeted a photo of the coin Tuesday saying that it's unlikely anyone will actually have the coin.

According to Snopes, the coin was certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. The corporation couldn't give Snopes a reason why the coin was created, the Dayton Daily News reported.

Snopes says the coin never entered circulation and was a "proof coin."

According to Snopes, the mint error took place at the San Francisco mint, but how that error happened is unknown.

Byers said he got the coin from a California State Auction.

Looks like we'll have to find another way to make $35,000.
