If you have a 1788 Maryland quarter, it could be worth more than $5,000, but it depends on whether the coin is in good condition.
The 1788 is one of many rare coins available online at sites like eBay and Amazon. It’s important to note that these coins are not legal tender and should only be bought as collector’s items by serious numismatists who can identify them by their unique characteristics.
The 1788 Maryland quarter is made of silver and has a face value of 25 cents. The coin has three different designs on its obverse side — an American Indian, a woman holding a cornucopia and an American eagle holding arrows in its talons — while its reverse side shows the state seal of Maryland surrounded by thirteen stars along with the words “Maryland 25 Cents.”
The coin has been graded as SP-64 by PCGS (Professional Coin Grading Service), which means that it has visible signs of wear but no major damage or defects that would hinder its value or appearance. It also does not have any toning (darkening) or spots on its surface.
