WASHINGTON -- Americans' wealth rose this spring for the first time in nearly two years, with stocks and home values gaining as the recession faded. Still, household net worth remains about 19 percent below its peak in the third quarter of 2007, before the recession began. The Federal Reserve said net worth grew by $2 trillion to $53.1 trillion in the April-to-June quarter. Net worth, or the value of assets such as homes, checking accounts and investments minus debts like mortgages and credit cards, rose nearly 4 percent from the first quarter, the Fed said.

Coin experts say that some 1989 quarters could be worth hundreds of dollars each because the U.S. Mint unwittingly struck an unknown number of them without a mint mark. Readers of the Numismatic News, a weekly based in Iola, Wis., sent in two 1989 quarters missing the mint mark, the New York Times reported. A spokesman for Stack's, a New York coin dealer, said that such coins could be worth between $250 and $1,000 each, based on the value of other coins with similar errors.
