The 1932 quarters with no mint mark have some numismatic value, although not nearly as much as the 1932 D or 1932 S quarters. In very good to fine condition each quarter is valued at around $7. In uncirculated condition the value is around $40-50 for each coin.

The 1932 D and 1932 S quarters each have low mintages and so they carry a lot of numismatic value- especially in uncirculated condition. In fair condition each coin is valued at around $6-9. In very good to fine condition the value can fetch around $40-50 per coin. The price is around $200 per coin in about uncirculated condition, and around $500 per coin in uncirculated condition.
