Jaime Hernandez:

The 1938 Proof Washington Quarters has the third lowest mintage in the entire Proof Washington Quarter series. Most surviving examples appear to be in about PR65 condition. Examples in PR66 are scarce but still probably over 1,000 still survive in this condition and higher. In PR67 it becomes somewhat scarce with possibly less than a couple hundred examples available. In PR68 condition it is a diamond in the rough, as there is less than a handful of examples known and none existing in any higher condition.
