Customer Reviews

This 1940 Washington quarter Proof is a "must" for those hoping to complete a date and mint mark collection of sought-after early quarters. Proof coins represent the pinnacle of the minter's art, and mintages back then were far lower than today.

  • Struck especially for collectors
  • A low-mintage Proof
  • Just 11,246 Proofs struck by the Philadelphia Mint that year
  • Intended to be a one-year commemorative marking the 200th anniversary of George Washington's birth
  • Designer John Flanagan's initials JF are at the base of Washington's neck.

Once overlooked, these early 90% silver quarters are more difficult to find because Statehood quarters brought millions of new collectors to the hobby who are now eagerly seeking older issues – so don't wait to order!
