This design is often called a "Barber" quarter after its designer, Charles Barber. Look on the back of the coin to see if there's a small mint mark letter below the eagle. It may be blank or there may be an O or S.

Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 02/2011:

No mint mark (Philadelphia):

Very worn condition - $8

Moderately worn - $22

Slightly worn - $35

Almost no wear - $137

Uncirculated - $210 to $20,800 depending on quality

"O" mint mark (New Orleans):

Very worn - $12

Moderately worn - $70

Slightly worn - $125

Almost no wear - $420

Uncirculated - $570 to $27,950

"S" mint mark (San Francisco):

Very worn - $13

Moderately worn - $47

Slightly worn - $72

Almost no wear - $312

Uncirculated - $690 to $21,450

DISCLAIMER: The retail values quoted are the best available as of the date shown, but may vary significantly due to changes in the precious metals market. Also the wholesale (buying) price of a coin will be less than the selling (retail) price. A reputable coin dealer will be able to give a more accurate valuation based on inspection of the coin.

The value of an 1898 US quarter can vary depending on its condition and rarity. In circulated condition, it is typically worth its face value of 25 cents. In mint condition or with certain rare characteristics, it could be worth significantly more to collectors.

There is a wide range of values, depending a bit on condition and especially the mint mark. For a '95 with no mint mark, it's worth about $5.50 in average condition and up to $200 if uncirculated. Then a '95-O is worth between $8.50 and $550, varying by condition. The '95-S is worth at least $20 and upwards of $500. To find the mint mark, check the reverse (tails side). The mark is just below the eagle.

It depends on how well the detail of the quarter are. I.E. if the hair distinctions are all worn off and you can barely read the date, it would be less then one that had those characteristics. But nonetheless, it should be worth a good sum of money for its age.

Assuming the coin is circulated and has no Mintmark, the 1893 Barber Quarter is a higher mintage common date coin. For an accurate assessment of value the coin needs to be seen and graded. Most coins show a lot of wear. In general retail values for low grade coins are $6.00-$26.00, better grade are $36.00-$72.00 and coins showing almost no wear run from $126.00-$198.00. Values are a market average and only for coins in collectible condition, coins that are bent, corroded, scratched or have been cleaned have far less value if any to a collector or dealer

Even though these coins were designed by Charles Barber they're almost always called Liberty Nickels or sometimes "V" nickels because of the Roman numeral V on the back.

The Denver Mint didn't open until 1906 so it's very likely you're seeing an "O" mint mark instead of a "D". Please see the Related Question for more information.
