Uncirculated: Best described as never been touched, appearing as if fresh from the mint. The color of the coin is either bright silver white or naturally toned. Technically the requirement is the total absence of wear. Look for the first evidence of abrasion from circulation showing as a break of the delicate luster on the cheeks.
Extremely Fine: Still sharply defined with abundant detail remaining. Examine the high points of the hair, curls above the ear, including the cheek and neck line for minimum wear. This quarter should standout from the rest in better quality.
Fine: The 1945 quarter value is reduced as wear has begun to take its toll on this quarter. Flattened areas of wear cover Washington's hair and curls. Although the hair line along the forehead is visible.
Good: The rim and the tops of the lettering are now connected to a degree. The portrait is distinct but in outline form. This 1945 quarter is typical of the condition that trades at the silver bullion value.
