1. 1999-P Connecticut Broadstruck Quarter 

Broadstrike errors occur when a coin is struck without the collar that normally keeps it within certain dimensions. This can result in a coin that is larger and misshapen. These error quarters can be worth $25 to $100 or more, depending on their condition.

2. 2005-P Kansas State Quarter with "In God We Rust" Error 

This error is due to a grease-filled die causing the T in "TRUST" to be weak or entirely missing. While not incredibly rare, collectors do seek them out, and they can be worth several times their face value.

3. 1982 No Mint Mark Roosevelt Dime 

In 1982, a few dimes were mistakenly produced without a mint mark. These coins are rare and can be worth $50 to $100 or more to the right collector.

4. 2004-D Wisconsin State Quarter with Extra Leaf 

There are two variations: the "High Leaf" and "Low Leaf." Both errors are relatively easy to spot with the naked eye and can fetch $200 to $300 or more in good condition.

1970-S Small Date Lincoln Cent 

The "small date" variety of this coin, particularly in high grades, is sought after by collectors. Depending on its condition and whether it's a proof coin, it can be worth $40 to $100 or more.

6. 1992 Close AM Lincoln Memorial Cent 

In 1992, a few Lincoln cents were mistakenly made with the reverse intended for the following year's coinage, which features the A and M in "AMERICA" almost touching. These can be worth $20 to over $500, depending on the condition and whether it's from the Philadelphia or Denver mint.

7. 1965 Silver Roosevelt Dime 

Most dimes minted after 1964 are clad, but a few silver dimes from 1965 have been found, likely due to leftover silver planchets being struck by accident. These rare coins can be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
