Value

The 1952 quarters with no mint mark and the 1952 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 each.

The 1952 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 around $25 per coin.

Proof coins are available and they are valued at around $50 each with a grade of around PR-65. Graded proof coins with a grade of PR 67+ will sell for more. The Philadelphia mint issued out only 81,000 proof coins, which is why they are valuable.
