$2.97 is the minimum 1943 quarter value. It is the underlining silver price moving your coin to this level.
If yours is the "D" or "S" mintmark issue, and "Uncirculated", it is now worth in the $25 to $30 range. Of the three mints coining Washington quarters in 1943, the Denver Mint "D" is the most valuable.
Next in line, the San Francisco mint "S" produced coins that are a little less rare and valuable than the Denver coins. Lastly, the Philadelphia mint, no mintmark, issued quarters in large quantities, close to 100 million pieces. These are the most available and generally trade at their silver bullion value… unless in "Uncirculated" condition.
Condition is very important to collectors and dealers when price is considered. The impressive Washington quarter pictured is an example rising to the top of the value scale. Never circulated, and no wear, a very desirable coin.

As you proceed handle each coin carefully, keeping in mind, 1943 quarter value is highest for "Uncirculated" coins.
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: Slight wear confined only to the highest points of the design. The areas of focus to determine grade, are the hair details towards the top of Washington's head, the curls above the ear, and the cheeks near the eye. Easily described as a crisp and collectible coin.
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: 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, 1943 quarter value is their silver content.
