    What's the oldest dime you have found?

    Halves seem to be getting harder to find around here, so I have been looking through dimes. I have had pretty good luck, with 11 silver Roosevelt's in my last box. I have been amazed at the number of people finding Mercury dimes and am always on the look out for them.

    I was going through a box yesterday and notices a dark sliver edge. The coin also seemed a little smaller that the other dimes. I was hopeful that I may be on to my first Mercury. I was astounded when I looked closely and saw that I was holding a 1914 D Barber dime. My first, and probably only Barber!

    Has anyone else found any Barber dimes? What is the oldest dime you have found?

    Ok, I am humbled! Did these coins come from roll hunting?

    I've only searched dimes on a reasonable scale once. And I found a 1946 Roosie. Maybe I should get dimes again...

    I just found a 1908S Barber dime last Thursday night (5/20) while detecting in front of an older, small-town post office that was getting new sod. Very exciting! A first for me! Have not found one while CRH'ing, however.

    Re: What's the oldest dime you have found?

    hmm... well, I've found a few canadian dimes from the 30's, My oldest U.S. dime this year is a 46 rosie. My oldest dime ever, I'd have to break out the collection. I know I have a bunch of mercs in there, but I've only actually found 2 of them in the wild.
