Found this one this morning. Almost spent it on a cuppa. Need idea of its grade. Poor condition at the worst but may be a little better. Any ideas? :w

Yea, might have been good at that. It seems that the 83 p is a bit hard to come by. Wish that this one was at least a ms something. Book has the ms 63 at about $21. Now that would buy several of the fancy latte's :w

That seems a bit strange as the mintage on these is very high, I wonder if the quality is hard to find rather than the date.

No mint sets were released in 83', so to find the highest grade examples, collectors had to look through original rolls and bags. So not many bags and rolls were hoarded and most of them appeared to have entered circulation. It's similar to the 1884-S, and similar date Morgan Dollars, high mintage but most are circulated.

This is according to NGC's newsletter from 2006.

And that is why I wish it was an MS.....Never know what you might find these days. The below information is from CoinTrackers.

Type: Washington Quarter
Year: 1983
Mint Mark: P
Face Value: 0.25 USD
Total Produced: 673,535,000 [?]
Silver Content: 0%
Numismatic Value: $22 to $56
Value: As a rough estimate of this coins value you can assume this coin in poor condition will be valued at somewhere around $22, while one in "great" shape can bring $56. This price does not reference any standard coin grading scale. So when we say poor, we mean worn more than would be expected from a coin in this age, and great meaning it looks "great" relative to other coins of the same age.

Me thinks it is worth hanging on to. :w

clyde, just the MS ones are valuable,there are plenty of circulated ones out there,they will never be worth more than an 84,85,etc...in circulated condition.
The values on your chart are for uncirculated and even then are probably on the high side.

I am not saying not to hang on to the coin, but no way this coin is worth $22 in poor condition.
