1953 is not considered to be a rare year for quarters. The coin is made of an alloy of 90% silver and 10% copper. Its melt value in lower grades is approximately 0.18 times the current price of 1 ounce of silver. In circulated condition they are worth 5 to 8 dollars. The value goes up if they're uncirculated.
