Thanks to a few significant factors, THIS uncommon Ohio quarter brought close to $1,000 at auction.
According to TikToker and coin enthusiast Blake Alma, the 2002 Ohio state quarter does not typically have many flaws.
He posted on TikTok to say that the double-struck error is what really adds value to this quarter.
When a coin is stamped twice, an error of this kind results.
When the coin is struck for the first time, fails to eject from the collar die, and is then struck again, this occurs.
The second strike is then delivered immediately after the first one, on top of the first strike.
According to Professional Coin Grading Services, a double-strike on-center frequently rotates between strikes, with the first strike not exactly aligned with the second strike.
This particular quarter was the 17th coin in the 50 State Quarters Program to be released, having been struck in March 2002.
