Melville, New York (PRWEB) October 1, 2007
Established in 1999, Coinland.com (http://www.coinland.com), located in New York, is a pioneer in the coin collecting business. The company announced today that after assessing values of two-headed quarters they have not found any resulting millionaires.
Individuals find these two-headed quarters in circulation and hope that they've found some extremely rare government mint error. They then have a company like Coinland.com assess the true value of the two-headed quarter only to learn that their coin is not genuine and is worth very little, usually between $5 to $15, depending on how well it's made and what the face value of the coin is.
Two-headed quarters found in circulation or purchased at swap meets are not made by the U.S. Mint. Rather they have been created as a novelty device, used in magician's tricks or for pranks.
There have been anecdotal reports of two genuine two-headed quarters found in the safety deposit box of a deceased San Francisco mint worker. Even if these tales are true, it is a sure thing that no two-headed U.S. coins could ever possibly have entered circulation.
Allan Rosenberg, Coinland.com President, states, "The U.S. Mint has built-in protections against accidentally making coins that have the improper die rotation or die setup. The shaft of the dies are made to be a certain size and shape, so that they will only fit into the coin presses a predetermined way. Consequently, any two-headed U.S. coin you find in pocket change is a novelty item. A surefire way to tell if the two-headed quarter is fake is to bounce it on the surface and hear the hollow sound. Because a fake two-headed quarter is basically hollow."
Gary E. Haffer, Director of Sales and Marketing at SpiderSplat, states, "Coinland.com is a unique entity on the web by not only offering coins but also providing full service for all your other coin needs and an unheard of 30 day return policy while they are committed to providing quality coins at competitive prices."
