The $400,000 Mission: Searching Your Changes for Uncommon Bicentennial Quarters 

In 1975 and 1976, the United States Mint produced a special series of quarters to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the nation's independence.  

These coins, known as Bicentennial quarters, feature a unique design on the reverse side, depicting a colonial drummer and a torch encircled by 13 stars, symbolizing the original 13 colonies.  

While millions of these quarters were minted, it's the ones with certain distinguishing characteristics that hold significant value for collectors. 

Among these Bicentennial quarters are some rare varieties that can fetch substantial sums on the collector's market.

The most sought-after versions include those with errors in the minting process or unique characteristics that set them apart from the standard coins.  

One such variety is the so-called "No S" quarter, where the coin was minted without the customary mint mark ("S" for San Francisco) on the obverse side. 

These coins were mistakenly struck at the Philadelphia Mint without the mint mark, making them exceedingly rare and highly desirable among collectors.
