Type B Reverse Washington Quarters
      The following excerpt is from the 2014 Red Book:  Proof coins from 1937 through 1972 were made from special dies with high relief and minor detail differences. Some of the circulation coins of 1956 through 1964 and 1969-D through 1972-D were also made from reverse dies with these same features. A variety of the 1964-D quarter occurs with the modified reverse normally found only on the clad coins. Type B Reverse
    Here you can see the space between
    the E and S in STATES on this      
    close-up of the Type B Reverse.
      The fastest way to identify the type B Reverse is to look at the ES in STATES. On the normal reverse the E and S touch. On the type B Reverse there is a very big space between the letters. This is a proof reverse! These coins are not listed in the Whitman Red Book. They are listed in the Krause Catalog and the monthly price list in Numismatic News. PPP Coins has every date available in circulated grades and also in brilliant uncirculated. Call for prices, 610-566-0952. These are a tantalizing tidbit for the Quarter Enthusiast.
