Does anyone know what discrepancy some Wisconsin U.S State Quarters contain, which make them valuable?

Thanks,

I heard this on the bus this morning, but apparently they accidentally made the Wisconsin quarters the size of a horse, and completely out of gold.

Thanks very much! I am now going to go through my coin collection, in hopes of finding this rare Wisconsin coin.

Thanks again,

So the extra leaf that this article mentions is the small leaf on the lower left of the corn, is that right ?

That is correct. There are two variations of the extra leaf. One version has the stray leaf pointed up while the other variation has the extra leaf on the stalk.
