Accurate 1950 quarter value depends upon a careful study of grade. This process is understandably one of the hardest to get correctly, especially when large dollar amounts are at stake.
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: Still sharply defined with abundant detail remaining, the high points of the hair, curls above the ear, the cheek and neck line show slight wear. The coin should standout as one decidedly better from most.
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. A 1950 quarter typical of this condition trades at its underlying silver bullion value.
