In 1943, as World War II raged, more than 16 million quarter dollars were struck at the Denver Mint. In circulated and in lower Mint State grades, a 1943-D Washington quarter dollar is a common issue. But in Mint State 68 it’s a condition rarity and PCGS has graded just a single example in this grade with none finer. It sold for $11,750 at a Feb. 27 Heritage auction. 

Surprisingly, it has been offered twice recently at auction. On Nov. 3, 2013, it sold for $12,925 and on Jan. 14, 2013, it brought $17,625.
