So I was picking up some wheats at the LCS and a guy that was clearly not a coin guy walked in. Said he had some 2020 Bat quarters and that their errors made them worth $5-6k each. This was according to something he had seen online? Anyways, myself and the two other employees promptly started a search. Nothing. eBay has sold a few lots that were high but not nearly as high as he suggested. Is there ANY error that would make that coin that valuable? I can't find it....

... to the Community!

The only ATB Quarter that was worth 5k$ was the FIRST "W" minted coin submitted to PCGS. It is a promotional program to help publicize the "W" coins to the public.

I know on no error BAT quarter that could bring that kind of money unless some kind of "mule" die pairing error showed up. It hasn't happed as far as I know.

Some eccentric collector putting together a set of high grade ATB Quarters might pay that kind of money for MS70 PCGS/NGC graded coins if they ever show up and they are needed to complete a registry set.

there are errors that would make a modern coin that valuable, but I can almost promise this guy does not have them. In fact, my money would be on whatever coins he has not being errors at all and him just being a complete loon. If this was at a coin shop, shouldn't the owner be well enough versed to look at the coins and pretty easily assess whether or not there might be some validity to the claim? Obviously, more tests might need to be run to prove that the coins *were* thousand-dollar errors, but confirming that they are definitely not errors should be much more likely and much easier for someone with even a little experience.

The owner was out of town but the two guys working there pretty much told the guy he didn't have anything. The problem is the lack of info on such a new coin. It was one of those situations where we knew it was likely worthless but if there was something there you wouldn't want to pass it up. There's nothing in the grey book and very limited info online.

Any error worth thousands of dollars should be pretty obvious. Something like a mule die pairing, a crazy wrong planchet error, a double denomination, etc.

So many people walk into coins shops thinking that they have something valuable because of something they read online and got garbled.

The good coin shops know how to gently tell people they have nothing valuable, but many are not convinced.

Might be part of some of those wonderful numismatic videos on YouTube.
