The Wisconsin state quarter, seen here in the U.S. Mint official version, has been reported to have variations, with two versions of extra leaves found.
An irregularity in recently-issued Wisconsin quarters is fast turning the coins into valued collector's items. The coin, which features a stalk of corn on its obverse face, has two design variations in the coin. The rarer of the two is fetching as much as $500 among collectors. The U.S. Mint is attempting to determine how the irregularity came about — and how many coins were affected.
