This 1940-D Washington Quarter was graded by the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) at the stunning and sought after Mint State 66 level. This mintage of this date is 2,797,600, making it a tougher date to find in the Washington Quarter series. This issue contains .18084 oz. of silver and was struck on a 90% silver planchet at the Denver Branch of the U.S. Mint.

Classic Flanagan Design

The obverse of the coin features the portrait of First President of the United States, George Washington. It was designed by artist John Flanagan. This portrait was based on the famous marble bust that was sculpted by French artist Jean-Antoine Houdin. The reverse features a heraldic eagle clutching a bundle of arrows over a wreath comprised of olive branches. This reverse design served from 1932 until it was retired in 1999 by the popular state quarters program.

MS66 Ultra Collectible

It is highly unusual for a circulation strike coin from this time to grade at such an exemplary level. The Mint State 66 grade is characterized by an above average strike. Coins in this grade exhibit stunning mint luster, wonderful eye appeal and radiant design details. There may be small imperfections apparent under magnification, but they will tend to be in non-focal areas. This coin boasts very pretty original blue, gold, and red colors
