2019 San Antonio Accidental Release

Odd & Curious Money | JudeA

Well, this is kinda late, but for any of you who didn't know. The San Antonio Missions National Parks Quarter was scheduled to release on September 5th. A coin collector obtained rolls from his bank, and when he opened them, they all contained San Antonio Quarters. "What's so special about that?" You might ask. Well, this collector found this BEFORE the release date. He found 2 "W" mint mark quarters and sent them in to PCGS for grading. PCGS graded them for him. Here are some links that you should click to read more about this:

Our Friend Pat got another W himself, the San Antonio Missions one also. I guess some folks, not me, get all the luck.

Cool! I didn't know he got one. I feel like the chances of obtaining one of these from pocket change are small, but that I might be able to get one from a bank box. Unfortunately, I don't have $500 in cash for a bank box of quarters!

Too bad that isn't your hand. Wait a minute, I meant my hand..haha!!

I wonder whether the "accidental early release" status has any effect on the future value of this particular slabbed coin. After all, once the coin is officially released it is no different than any other.

wow, two 'w' quarters! in one roll, that wasn't even supposed to be there! And most of us can't even find one 'w' lol. Thanks...
