Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Bronze colored Taxes State Quarter


I have this Taxes State Quarter just wondering how much is it worth.Can not find a website about it.Can you help?

Hi Fred,
Well, the value would be based on the concept that the coin is an error.  If it isn't, it's worth face value.

When you say bronze color, that could mean the coin was painted, plated, tarnished or a TRUE error.  Since the coins are a sandwich of nickel and copper, if the planchet (coin blank) was not the correct one, say one used for $1 coins, that is a true error and could be worth $500.
If the coin is missing the outer nickel layer, that is a true error and could be worth $2-300.

However, it if is something that occurred after it left the US Mint, it was tampered with, and therefore only worth face value.

Without inspecting teh coin, I can not tell you what it is.
