    Dime searchers please chime in.

    Since I have time I'm gonna go through a box of dimes by hand. Is there ANYTHING at all worth keeping besides silver?

    Proof coins. I usually just edge check for silver then pull any that look to have a wider rim hoping they are a proof. Plus I look for any to fill spots in my Whitman folders.

    Good luck!

    Check for them, but they are rare to find. I only remember 1 of each found on this forum in the past 1 and a half years.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    I like searching dimes because by edge checking I can search a box in 20 min. I have found a clad proof but I'm sure I have missed some. If I faced check all or most dimes, I would end up quiting dimes.

    I strictly edge check for silver. The first box that I ever got, I date-checked and it took FOREVER and was annoying me to the point that I wanted to smash things. Same reason I only do nickels every once in a while.

    I found a OLD roll of dimes yesterday.

    It was a 3 dollar roll.

    The teller had it set aside because it was unique.

    No Silver though - but the paper is cool.

    I just edge search dimes, look at fat rims to see if its a proof. The 1996 W dime is interesting, but its not likely that you'd be able to sell a circulated example for much, considering all the effort it would take (uncirculated ones sell for about $20) and the 1982 no P dime is certainly worth it if you can find one, but it would take forever to date search a box of dimes, let alone the several it would take to find one.
