    [TTQ] Two-tailed quarters are generally man-made “magician’s coins,” making this genuine example, graded PCGS MS-62, exceedingly rare.

    The first is the third-known example of a two-tailed quarter, likely struck in the 1965–1967 period. This piece, now graded PCGS MS-62, was purchased by noted error specialist Fred Weinberg at the September 2017 Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Expo.
    Keep in mind that while there are many two-headed or two-tailed coins in existence, nearly all are manmade “magician’s coins” created by sawing two coins in half and mating the matching parts. They will have a very different “ring” to them if dropped on a hard surface such as wood, metal, or glass.

    “It’s always an honor to grade a great rarity, and this genuine two-tailed quarter is certainly one of the rarest of all U.S. Mint errors,” stated David Hall, president of Collectors Universe (NASDAQ: CLCT), the parent company of PCGS.

    [1968-S] Though a few 1965 silver quarters exist, this is the only known example of its date.

    The second piece is a 1968-S Proof quarter, struck on a 90% silver planchet (Type 2, with upset rims) left over from 1964. While a few 1965 silver quarters are known (and a 1966 is rumored), it is the only known post-1964 Proof silver quarter.

    This coin, now graded PCGS PR-64, was also purchased by Mr. Weinberg at the September 2017 Long Beach Expo and is accompanied by a July 1969 letter containing a spectrograph analysis confirming it is a 90% silver / 10% copper composition. Originally owned by well-known dealer Lyle Clark of California, this coin was purchased from Mr. Clark’s son.

    PCGS President Don Willis noted that the submission of these nearly unique and extremely valuable pieces underscores the high degree of confidence the marketplaces in PCGS’s authenticity and grading opinions.

    Back in the day I purchased a 1955 double die Lincoln cent for $3.50 from some mail order dealer. I couldn't see where was the double strike. I think the whole mint strike variations concept is mostly BS appreciated by mostly weirdos. There are some worth looking at, but who spends money on that stuff?
