The 1932 quarter value is $3.26 each, the minimum for a heavily worn coin.
There is a chance it is even higher. Let's check for mintmarks and condition.
Three different minting facilities, Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco, produced Washington quarters in 1932. The two most valuable and the "keys" to the series are the Denver and San Francisco coins, each worth over $40.
These two mintmarked issues are avidly sought by collectors and large premiums are paid by dealers. The "D" or "S" mintmark is found on the reverse.
Now add to this, a better condition coin, and your 1932 quarter is worth considerably more.

A date listing of "1932-S" is a quarter minted in 1932 at the San Francisco mint. In 1932 the mintmarks on Washington quarters are found on the reverse just below the wreath.
Follow along with the images as a Washington quarter begins to wear from freshly minted to a very worn example. By judging the condition of your coin, a "Grade" is determined. The greater the detail remaining, the greater your 1932 quarter value.
Uncirculated: A quarter in this grade has never circulated through commerce. Showing no signs of wear, it still has the look of brand new. The most desirable condition to collectors and the highest values.
Extremely Fine: Washington quarters first begin to wear on the cheek, hair and curls. The detail of the hair begins to merge and a slight diminish to the roundness of the cheeks. Still a very sharp looking coin.
Fine: Most of the fine detail in the hair is lost, the area around the ear is smooth, but the major design elements are still bold. True the coin has a worn appearance, but not tired. Overall a pleasing coin.
Good: All the major details show but very flattened by wear. The tops of the letters have begun to merge into the rim.
