Statehood Quarters as a Collectable

 Aloha Everyone;

I Hope you are all enjoying life as it was meant to be enjoyed. Wow, today I will talk about the awesome Statehood Quarters. These Coins ushered in the New Age of American coin collecting. Every ten weeks from 1999 through 2009 different states and finally at the end of the program the territorial quarters were minted. The territioies, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, the Northern Marianas and the District of Columbia. These coins have been minted and will never be minted again. These coins added excitement to the collecting world of coins.

A new quarter that is coming on the heels of the Statehood Quarter is the National Park Quarters. Personally I have not added any of these to my collection, but plan to in the near future. They are sure to add as much excitement to the field of collecting coins as did the Statehood Quarters.

The Statehood Errors starting out were high due to the demand put on the Mint to produce a certain amount of these coins before the deadline. As discoveries of these coins became public and made headlines, the Mint instituted more quality controls to insure very few mistakes left the mint.

My first coin error in the Statehood Quarters came from a soda machine. I put in a dollar for a Mt. Dew and got a Quarter in change. I flipped the coin over, it was a 1999 Pennslvania. I flipped it back over to see the Obverse, it was not alligned like it was supposed to be. I measured the rotation error to be 30% off. I was excited about having this coin in my collection as they sell at a high price. I began buying the uncirculated rolls from the mint and searching for errors. I have accumulated a very nice collection of these Statehood Quarters with errors and the majority in Mint State Condition.

The pictures I have posted are from coins in my personal collection. There are comments written under each coin so I will not repeat them here.

The Doubled Die term was put on coins because the coin moved in the collar after the first strike and the second strike caused the doubling effect. Now a new Squeeze type of creating the coins is being used and was supposed to elliminate the doubling effect, so why are coins coming up with a doubling effect? I don't have the answer to this but I am having a few of these coins sent to ANACS. I will request research on the cause. I like ANACS because they offer this service to the collector. I will include all answers to questions raised as I get them. I will post them in later writings.

Errors that can commonly found on Statehood Quarters are listed below:

not struck on the Quarter Planchet, Double Struck, struck 3 to 4 times, Obverse clad layer missing, reverse clad layer missing, off center minor, off center major, Rotated Reverse, Brockage, Broadside, struck-through, partial collar, clipped minor, clipped major....

In my later writings I will give you some deffinitions of the above errors and provide pictures of each, so you know what they look like.

      Hi, I have a 2001 Rhode Island quarter that was given to me as a tip about 10 years ago. I was kind of upset at the small gesture of kindness, since I rely on tips in order to pay my bills. The gentleman explained to me that it would one day be worth something, because while the front of the quarter looks to be like all other quarters, the back is completely double stamped with the sailboat and water, and then completely stamped again with the water feature. Is this worth anything??
