Another 50 silver dimes, one roll worth, all Roosevelt 1964 and prior. This sale is for these particular dimes, stored in a bag here for the last 50+ years. All dates are legible and some of these seem in better than average condition, see below.
These are the last roll worth from the little plastic bag circled in photo 5, photographed and set aside, with a preponderance of 1964 ones that look unusually sharp and clean, nearly pristine compared to the ones from 1948 or'61 or whatever. These bright 1964 ones are largely in the V portion in photos, the earlier 1940s and 50s ones are in the I, where you can see they're darker, less lustrous looking. As the disorganization seen in the photo of'my hoard' shows, keeping the lots straight has become confusing, thus the weird "VI" arrangement, a device to let me know that this is dime lot #6. So on numismatic value I don't know, but at least some of these look crisp and comparatively like new. Some of the others have typical wear or tarnish, visible in photos, but at very least they're all Constitutional silver a.Though that term seems unduly insulting, where an old dime roll is 3.57 troy ounces of silver. I probably got the bright 1964 ones as a complete roll from the bank when they were new, eventually the paper tube tore, and I put them in a baggie with other dimes randomly kept from change. I guess this makes them circulated now but, compared to the average, they do seem in nicer condition. Most of my dimes seem to be Philadelphia mint (I hoarded them up here so no surprise), but I think several of these are 1964-D, have the Denver mint mark, which I believe they kept making after'64, though briefly. You could still get silver dimes and quarters in rolls for a couple of years after'64, especially if your best friend worked at a large bank. There was also said to be a terrible "coin shortage" back then, all over the news in histrionic terms that, rather idiotically, blamed coin collectors and "silver hoarders" as the guilty parties causing it, though we never saw any actual evidence of a shortage in day to day life. Nevertheless, that supposed shortage of pocket change was presented as the reason it was suddenly necessary to devalue the U. In any case, FDR on one side, torch on the other, these dimes are actually a hair heavier at 2.5 grams each than the current (I would say distinctly inferior) modern cupronickel models.
