U.S. quarters, starting from 1932, are called "Washington

quarters." Washington quarters dated from 1932 to 1964 are made

with 90% silver and 10% copper, and weigh 6.25 grams. The value of

the metals depends on the market price of silver and copper. As of

October 5, 2007, the value of the silver in a pre-1964 Washington

quarter is $2.41 (market price of silver $13.39 per ounce) and the

value of the copper in a pre-1964 Washington quarter is about a

half of a cent, giving the total value of a pre-1964 Washington

quarter about $2.42. If the coin is rare, and/or is in mint like

condition, it could be worth significantly more. None of the 1944

Washington quarters (Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Denver mints)

are rare, but if the coin is in mint state, it would be worth about

$35.
