Jaime Hernandez:

The 1942 Proof Washington Quarter is a tougher coin as it has one of the lowest mintages in the Proof Washington Quarter series. Most examples appear to exist in the PR64 to PR66 range. Examples in PR67 are much scarcer yet affordable to most serious Washington Quarter collectors. In PR68 condition it is very scarce with less than a few dozen examples known.
