Green Star

In the realm of coin collecting, coins in perfect condition typically fetch the highest prices. Even if they have been handled and worn, some coins have values that far exceed their face value.

We'll look into some of the most valuable quarters that are currently in use. We'll go over how to identify one and the reasons collectors find them intriguing.

Production of the Washington quarter took place from 1932 until 1964. Its obverse bears a portrait of the former president George Washington, which is where it gets its name.

The Washington quarter series began with the 1932 mintage, which was produced in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. In Denver, just 436,800 quarters were struck, and in San Francisco, only 408,000 were.

Of all the Washington quarters, the San Francisco-minted 1932 coin had the smallest mintage. There were only 408,000 coins made. These days, only 40,000 are thought to have survived.

1932-S Washington Quarter

Of the whole Washington quarter series, the 1937 San Francisco quarter had the third-lowest mintage. The only lower mintages were from San Francisco and Denver in 1932.

From 1999 to 2008, the US Mint issued a set of quarters honouring each of the states. The 50 State quarters are the name of the series.

Green Star

Naturally, the 2004 Denver quarter with the extra leaf is more valuable due to its rarity. A grade of 55 on a "about uncirculated" specimen increases the value to about $105 approximately.

One kind of inaccuracy that arises during the coin-striking process is called a "double die obverse." nearly $235 is the value of a "very fine" copy graded 45, while approximately $440 is the value of a "about uncirculated" specimen graded 10 points higher.

However, the Philadelphia-minted 1934 Washington quarter perhaps have the series' most striking doubling. $8,500 is the value of a 1943 Washington quarter with a double die obverse graded "about uncirculated" 58+.

In circulating condition, the 1950-S/D ("S over D") Washington quarter is valued about $6 or $7. However, even a graded 3 S/D coin is worth $26. About $85, for a "fine" graded coin, and about $120 for a "very fine" graded coin, is the approximate value.

1950-S/D Washington Quarter

Green Star

It is estimated that 20,000 survivors have the D/S fault in total. About $26 is the value of a coin graded 3, increasing to $70 at 15, $90 at 25, $140 at 45 metres, and $220 at 55.
