The 1951 quarters with no mint mark and the 1951 D quarters don't have much numismatic value. In extremely fine condition they are valued at a few dollars over their silver melt value. However in uncirculated condition they are valued at around $15 for each coin.
The 1951 S quarters are more rare and thus have the most numismatic value. In extremely fine condition the value is around $8 per coin, and in uncirculated condition the value is at least $20 per coin.
Proof coins are available and most of them are valued at around $40 each. Graded proof coins with a grade of PR 67+ will sell for more. The Philadelphia mint issued out only 57,000 proof coins, which is why they are valuable.
