The coin value chart breaks the prices down by date, mintmark and state of preservation.
The most valuable Washington quarters are always the "Uncirculated" examples, the first image. The lowest value quarters are in "Good" condition. Most collectors eventually replace these "Good" coins with a finer example.
Uncirculated: The top grade in both quality and value, requires close examination to confirm. Inspect the highest points of design and the fine details for evidence of wear. It is most noticeable as a dulling of the surface and breaks in the mint luster.
Extremely Fine: The lightest of wear and abrasion begins to show in the hair and curls over Washington's ear. Minute details have disappeared and mint luster is absent from the neck and cheek. This quarter is worn, but very lightly.
Fine: Still a respectable coin despite moderate wear. The hair and curls now show only major details. The neck and chin are worn to the point of merging. However the rim and date are clearly separated.
Good: All the major details show but very flattened by wear. The tops of the letters have begun to merge into the rim. In this grade, 1964 quarter value is their silver content.
