Uncirculated: A quarter in this grade has never circulated through commerce and survives today untouched. 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: This quarter exhibits minor evidence of circulation, but was put away before to much wear resulted. Examine the hair and you notice the details are gone. Also the roundness of Washington's neck and cheeks has smoothed out somewhat.
Fine: Most of the small detail in the hair is worn smooth, the detail around the ear is missing, but the major design elements are still bold. True the coin has a circulated appearance, but not tired. Overall a pleasing coin.
Good: The Washington portrait is smooth from circulation, but all essential details remain. The rims of a 1944 quarter are normally still well defined, but have begun to merge into the lettering and date.
