Tracking them all can become quite complicated.

All the Washington Quarters minted in the year 1989 carried a mint mark: "P," "S," or "D." The P and D minted coins are worth in MS60 condition: 75 cents; the S coin was minted only in proof and its value is: $3.00.

Matte proof coins are special proofs that have a grainy "sandblasted" look on the surface. Matte proof coins were sometimes made in the early part of the 1900's. Normal proof coins have a mirror like brilliant surface.
