Follow along with the images as a Washington quarter begins to wear from freshly minted "Uncirculated" condition, to a very worn example in "Good" condition. By judging the different stages of wear, a "Grade" is determined. The greater the detail remaining, the greater your 1962 quarter value.
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 slight evidence of circulation, but was put away before to much wear accrued. Examine the hair and you notice the details are gone. Also the roundness of Washington's neck and cheeks has smoothed out somewhat.
Fine: 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 envelops the lettering to a degree but stops about a third of the way. The portrait is distinct and most of the prominent details remain. A 1962 quarter typical of this condition trades at its underlying silver bullion value.
