1960 is not a rare date for Washington quarters. In average

circulated condition, its value is determined mostly by the silver

it contains. The price of silver changes every day, so check a

newspaper or financial site for the current price, then multiply by

0.18 for a rough retail value. A dealer will pay half to 2/3 of

that amount.

The value depends on where it was minted and what condition the

coin is in. Also, this coin is composed of 90% silver so the

minimum value is about $4 as of 01/2013. According to USA Coin

Book, these are the values:

Philadelphia (no mint mark): In good condition, this coin

is worth about $5.50 up to about $8.35 in MS60 mint condition. In

MS65 brilliant uncirculated condition, this coin is worth about

$23. Proof coins were also minted here and those are worth about

$11.

Denver (small "D" mint mark): In good condition, this

coin is worth about $5.50 up to about $8.35 in MS60 mint condition.

In MS65 brilliant uncirculated condition, this coin is worth about

$23.
