The value of Draped Bust Quarters

The 1796 and 1804 Quarters are super rare and tend to be the most expensive.

Since it's rare that the 1807 is fully struck, the 1805 and 1806 years are typically more valuable.

Because the 1805 is hard to find in high grade, the 1806, is the most available in Mint State, according to Professional Coin Grading Services.

The higher grades tend to be more expensive because of the collector's demand.

In 2018, one 1806 Draped Bust Quarter sold at an auction for $102,000.
