Couple more nice ones, I've not been to either sight but have spent time in both states.  Thought I'd add this one...I have been there. Note, had to add one of my favorites :-)

Unless I've not posted Puerto Rico these three should round out the US Territories; US Virgin Islands, American Samoa and The Northern Mariana Islands.  My list is a little off and the wife jumbled my coins :-(  Most we've tried to pull out of circulation as soon as possible but we've had to replace some over the years.  Nothing more fun than my girl running in and showing off a really shiny replacement...she got the old one of course 😎  Adding Puerto Rico.  Spent a bit of time there flying counter narcotic missions...for the most part ;-)

Would love to go back.

Starting to run low...let me know what we're missing 🤔 Dale, I very much enjoyed San Juan...much better than Panama City (Panama, not Florida :-)

Two more (but one I think had chocolate smeared on it some point...cleaned it the best I could ;-)  Lowell (Mass) that I think is a pretty cool design, and one of my favorite fishing spots, The Great Basin in Nevada.  It is all about lighting doing pictures.  Still a work in progress.  Found that if I turned every other light off and just used the art lamp has the best results.

Ah, crap ☹

So let me try to sum up the USA Washington Quarters series

Counting P, D and S where minted and not counting any Modern Proofs and not counting any non-circulation Silver coins and not counting other varieties...

1932-1964 P,D, and S Silver issues, 83 coins
1965-1998 P$D, Clad Issues, 61 coins
1976 Commemorative Bicentennial, 2 coins, (also a Silver circulation coin that didn't circulate)
1999-2008 State Quarters, 100 coins
2009 DC and territories, 12 Coins
2010-2021, America the beautiful series, 102 coins I think

Total 360 coins, give or take a few

I have 30 of the pre 1964 Silver in uncirculated
So I have something like 265/360 in uncirculated condition

It is such a massive set I am not sure I will ever try to work on it some more.
There are so many other interesting coins out there  ;D

Dale, Thanks :-)  So here is one that I have no clue about...might have missed on the spelling.  Need to research but I'm pretty sure American Indian ground works.

Since 1965 (post Silver) the only ones that provide much challenge or that cost more than a small amount in MS-65 are

1982 P&D
1983 P&D

The 1983-P in MS-65 might cost more than $60 US dollars.

In 1982 and 1983 there were no US mint sets issued making it harder to get pristine coins.
However there were a few souvenir sets issued that were available only at the mint's gift shops.
Not too many of those were sold but I haven't seen any estimates of those sets numbers.

I did not know that about '82 '83s.  I'll keep a lookout.  I do have a number of pre 64s.  Not sure were to post but probably just US coins.  Added, White Mt...I like the design on this coin and it's a beautiful place to visit.

In grades lower than MS (Mint State), to the best of my knowledge, I don't believe they have any premium. In other words just a quarter dollar worth $0.25.

Just 25 cents :-)  Fun, though.  Added...Just about a two hour drive North.  Another nice place to visit. (just stay out of the Casino :-(

You can look on eBay for the 82 and 83 coins and see if circulated versions are selling and if MS coins are bringing that much.
I got that value from the Red Book and after all it is just a guide, real world prices often vary widely from catalog.

Like I say eBay is a good research tool and I have bought coins there upon occasion.
