Value

The value in circulated condition is worth at least its weight in silver. The scrap silver value for this coin is $3.22 as of September 19, 2019. This scrap value is calculated from the current silver spot price of $17.83 per ounce.

The 1960 quarter with no mint mark has a small amount of numismatic value. It has the lowest mintage of any silver quarter minted in the 1960s. In grades up to extremely fine condition, it will only sell for a slight premium above the silver scrap value. But in uncirculated condition, these coins each sell for around $7-10.

The 1960 D quarter is less rare and thus not as valuable, even in uncirculated condition. This coin in uncirculated condition only sells for a $1-2 premium above the silver scrap value.

Proof coins are available and they are valued at around $15 each. Graded proof coins with a grade of PR 67+ can sell for more. There were 1,600,000 proof coins minted so they aren't rare.
