The highest priced Washington quarters are always the "Uncirculated" examples, the first image. Descending to the lowest value "Good" condition quarters. Most collectors eventually replace these "Good" coins with a finer example.
Uncirculated: A 1954 quarter in the "Uncirculated" grade exhibits absolutely no wear on its surfaces. The coin appears as if freshly minted. Although natural toning acquired over the years can be very desirable. This combination of factors results in the most desirable and valuable coins.
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. The coin should standout from the rest as clearly detailed.
Fine: On this coin the small and finer details have worn away and the area surrounding the ear has flattened from circulation. Many transfers from hand to hand have left their mark. However, eye appeal is still rather nice.
Good: Here we are at the low end of the desirability scale. The lettering is now connected to the rim and only the major details of the portrait remain. The coin does not appear mistreated, for example, bent, heavy rim bumps and the like, just well worn.
