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.

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.
