The grading descriptions describe what to examine as you judge the condition of your quarters.
Accurate 1957 quarter value depends upon a careful study of grade. This process is understandably one of the hardest to get correct, especially when large dollar amounts are at stake.
Uncirculated: Untouched since being minted and no wear on its surfaces, a quarter in this condition is avidly sought by collectors and dealers. Admittedly few survive this nice. 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: 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: 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 important details show but very flattened by wear. The tops of the letters have begun to merge into the rim. A 1957 quarter in this condition is worth the underlying silver bullion value.
