    I started collecting 2017 and it is getting expensive. Now I'm just having fun collection all Washington Quarters. I have 1965-1998 and still collecting as much as I can on them. They are worth only their face value. I don't plan to sell then as I will pass them all down to the kids. I have 1200 quarters already and continue to collect more. I also separate them by mint marks and no mint marks by year.

    These quarters are more than 20 years old since they stop making them in 1998. Once I come up with 40 pcs by mint mark and year, I roll them and put them away. These are going to be saved and will never make it back to circulation. Maybe the next time they get to see sunlight again is may 30 years from now on. So I'm on my way to my next hunt of Washington Quarters.

    Tell me more about your collection.

    Happy Collecting.

    I've been watching them since Thanksgiving of 1965 when I got my first one and tried to take it apart. I started collecting them in 1972 when I heard that the mint and FED were going to start rotating their coin stocks.

    I've got some great ones but, I fear, a lot are tarnished now because I left most in the mint set packaging. My finest is probably a 1982-P which is very well struck and nearly mark-free. I have most dates in choice or superb Gem. My weakest is the '83-P because I never found a good source for this date. My '91-D is a little weak as well.

    These may be about the greatest collectible of all time but this seems to be a well kept secret.

    In the mint packaging, which means that it is in mint condition. Perfect collection. I'm glad to see that you have kept them instead of selling them. Thank you

    Except for the late 60s and 70s - that packaging was a disaster.

    The 1972-S is a proof I got in circulation. And the 1982-D is counterfeit. The 1989-P could be a P-01 if it's not a dryer coin. I guess the counterfeit does not qualify as clad. 72Scrop.png COUNTERFEIT.png P-01.png

    The 1982 D Reed is smooth. I couldn't even tell from a quick look if it's fake or real. Wow..

    I save the 1965's if they are in really good condition, I have about 50 of them in borderline uncirculated condition.

    I built a complete set from mostly mint and proof sets. Just missing the 1995 and 1997 silver proof versions. The 1965 - 1967 I bought as raw uncirculated - since I did not want SMS in the set as such. 1982 and 1983 issues were pulled from a 3rd party mint set.

    I also have 1940 - 1964 silver issues, all in uncirculated, along with all the P mint from the 30s and a few mint marked from the 30s (1936S in MS64, 1937D in MS65, 1938S in MS65, and 1939D in MS65)

    That is amazing collection. Un-circulated are sure a gem and its very expensive. That is why I'm only collecting them. I was lucky that a friend of mine have collect them for me from her shop and she found one 1964 in a Extra Fine condition. I paid her $3.00 for that one coin. I only have to circulated 1941 in good or very good condition and 1964 in very fine condition.

    Everyday, I ask every retail cashier for them and have been picking up 4 to 10 washington quarters.

    Thank you. That is a fine awesome collection. Whew...

    It looks almost natural!

    The counterfeit is cool, too.

    Keep your eyes peeled for 1964 clad error quarters.

    I have been working on a 32-98 collection for more than a decade and actually just purchased my final coin last night. The clad's were fundamental to my learning and I can't tell you how difficult it was sometimes, to find the right coin. My focus was higher grade examples. There used to be bargains to be had. Some of my finest and most prized coins are some of the ones I was able to cherry pick out of B&M rolls 10 years ago and acquire for $.65 lol. These were Gem + examples and I think those days are long gone. I was viewing PCGS price guide and noticed in this series, other than errors, it's the higher grade clad's that are steadily appreciating, and rightfully so.

    Cladking, I plan to make an extensive post on my finished album soon and I know you will appreciate those clad's. For so many of the dates/mm's, I used to buy multiple rolls, mint sets, bundles of mint set cut outs... not to mention all the shows and B&M's. When I do post this, I hope you take pride in it. Your appreciation of the series always gave me that extra little push to keep searching for a better example. I want to thank you and recognize your contributions to this forum.
