Neither the 1957 quarters with no mink mark or the 1957 D quarters have much numismatic value. In extremely fine condition the coins are each valued at around a $2 premium over the scrap silver value.
In uncirculated condition there is a slight difference in value between the two mint varieties. The 1957 quarters with no mint mark are valued at around $9 each in uncirculated condition. By contrast the 1957 D quarters are valued at around $6 each in uncirculated condition.
Proof coins are available and they are valued at $10-15 each. Graded proof coins with a grade of PR 67+ or higher will sell for more. The Philadelphia mint issued out 1.2 million collectible proof coins so they aren't rare.
