    silver proof dime!

    i did a couple of boxes of dimes today, just to mix things up, i dont often post my finds, but this was pretty awesome, so i thought i would.
    was almost done with the first box, when one of the last rolls had a thick silver colored edge, so i thought to myself "its way to thick and shiny to be american, so cool, a silver foreign coin", i pull it out and found my first proof dimes, and also my first silver proof coin in general from crh'ing! it was awesome! do u guys get these things on a regular basis ive never gotten one till now, so i am just curious, thanks.

    3x2009 dimes
    box #2-

    1xdime with a hole in it (why...i couldnt tell u)
    1xdime with a cud
    2x2010-p dimes (i needed this one for my folder, so ill keep the best, and throw the other back)
    1xdime that was struck through grease
    and yes, i had extra time, and had already searched by the rim, so out of boardum, i date checked, and it took for ever to see those tiny dates

    thanks for looking, and hh!

    Re: silver proof dime!

    While I don't have a complete understanding of how the mint separates the machines that make proofs from the ones making ordinary coinage, I would reasonably expect that at some point one would filter into the other.... and since most proofs are in sealed packages and are inspected... that would explain why few (if any) business strikes wind up in mint sealed proof sets.

    You've got a pretty dime tho

    They use different mints. Philly and Denver strike the business strikes while San Francisco strikes the proofs.

    Re: silver proof dime!

    I got one a couple years ago. It is very rare to find one in a box - nice find. I found quite a few silver proof halves so it is likely the whole sets get spent at the same time. Dimes circulate so much more that they must quickly get pulled.

    Life is a coin, you can spend it any way you wish, but you can only spend it once.

    Nice find.

    I;ve found one proof dime. But it was not silver. Most proof dimes are not silver. Just some are.

    yes, you've found a prety rare thing. good job!
