APMEX offers a superb selection of Washington Quarter Sets. The Washington quarters were originally created in 1932 to commemorate the birthday of America’s first president. They were originally intended to be a commemorative issue and not a regular issue coin. The U.S. government held a public contest to select the one-year coin design. The honor was given to John Flanagan, a former student of the famous sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, as his traditional design was selected. The key dates to this series are the 1932-D, 1932-S and the doubled die obverses and overdates.
