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: 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, 1951 quarter value is their silver content.
