The 1985-P Washington Quarter has a very high mintage of over 775 million coins struck. However, in MS66 condition and higher it is very scarce. Less than a couple hundred examples have been found in MS66 condition. In MS67 condition it is one of the tougher issues in the entire series, even more so than many of the Silver Quarters struck many years earlier. There are less than a handful of MS67 examples known for the 1985-P Washington Quarter with none being graded higher.
