This Quarter May Be Worth Much More Than You Think

CHICAGO (WGN) — The year 1970 may be your lucky number.

Check your pockets for a quarter made that year, because it could be worth a lot of money.

Bids for the coin below have topped more than $35,000 dollars on eBay because it has a mistake.

On the back — just above the word "dollar" — there is a tiny "1941."

The mistake happened when the quarters were printed over 1941 Canadian quarters.
