1979 25C MS66 Certification #73579137, PCGS #5906

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

The U.S. Mint struck about half a billion 1979-P Washington Quarters making it a very common issue. It is fairly common up to about MS66 condition. MS67 examples are very scarce. Anything grading higher than MS67 is considered rare.
