The 1983-D Washington Quarter was produced in the hundreds of millions, therefore, it is a very common issue in circulated grades. In Uncirculated grades examples up to MS64 could have been found in circulation with proper searching even several years after they were struck. Today most examples grading MS65 or higher probably come from original bags, mint sets or rolls. MS66 examples are very difficult to find even in rolls, bags or even in mint sets. In MS67 condition they are really scarce with less than two dozen known.
