    1965 silver dime?????

    The red book doesnt show a 1965 silver Roosevelt but I have 2. Is this common?

    As far as I am aware, the silver stopped in 1964. I have quite a few 65's myself. They seem pretty common.

    What makes you think yours is silver?

    I don't think any 65's slipped thru the cracks as silver or at least I have never seen one.

    groovedymond,

    I am positive they are silver. They are exacly like the 64's and they make the same sound that silve dimes make and they are solid in color all thru them. I found a site that has some info about them. They are worth about $100 a piece and they can still be found in circulation although rarely.

    I'm not sure where you found this information, but it is incorrect. 1965 silver dimes do indeed exist, but they were created on accident due to silver planchets from 1964 remaining trapped in the nooks and crannies of the mint's equipment. This is a VERY rare error called an "off metal error" and I can almost 100% guarantee that you did not find a 1965 silver dime, let alone 2. The only way to know for sure is to weigh it. The clad dimes weigh 2.268 grams, while the silver ones weigh 2.5 grams.

    Also, in regards to your value assessment, you are off by quite a bit. A genuine 1965 dime struck on a silver planchet can be worth well over $10,000.

    Accordig to "Strike It Rich With Pocket Change" (2006) there were accidental silver planchets used in 1965, 66, and 67. Just look at the reed edge. Clad will have the tell tale copper color on the edge. The silver ones are all silver. They are wrth big bucks.

    Some of those mid 60 dimes will sure catch your eye if you're looking through change AND on some of the metered machines.

    were did you find the value of 10k? I am positive these are silver and I am going to have them weighed today. There is no clad marks on the edge and they sound exactly like silver coins do and they also have the silver coin patina that clad just doesnt have.

    I will get them weighed and let you know and I will find that book. But was the value in that book?

    Surfin,


    I searched around on the internet for suggested values, as well as searching Heritage Auction Galleries' auction archive. On July 27, 2003, A PCGS AU 58 1965 dime struck on a silver planchet sold for $8,912. I believe that if that coin came up for auction again today, it would most likely sell for around 12-15 thousand dollars. http://coins.ha.com/common/view_item...No=9832&src=pr

    Then, on January 6th, 2006, an ANACS AU 55 1965 dime on silver planchet sold for $8,625.http://coins.ha.com/common/view_item...No=6260&src=pr

    As for your dimes having silver edges and looking/sounding silver, it seems for some reason that clad coinage from 1965-1970 always has an odd look to it that makes it appear to be silver.

    In mine (from 2006) it was $2000 to $5500. I'll double check tonight.

    Re: 1965 silver dime?????

    Had them taken to a jeweler and these babys are silver. I am going to take them to a coin expert on tuesday.

    I think if they are that pricey I will set one each aside for each of my boys.

    Surfin

    I will keep you posted. I still haven gone through all of these yet and if you want a bigger inventory check out "coins gallor" in todays finds.

    Re: 1965 silver dime?????

    Congrats and I hope you have the real thing there. Counterfeits have been made in the past I hear and cast in real silver. The chinese have been known to counterfeit silver coins and are darn good at it. I believe you will have to get them evaluated by an expert numismatist or one of the top three grading companies, which are PCGS, NGC, or ANACS in order to validate. Good luck

    The silver proof sets were not started until 1992. Before 1964, the sets were technically silver proof sets, but only because all circulating halves, quarters, and dimes were made of 90% silver. There is no way these dimes came out of a silver proof set. In fact, the proofs of 1964 and before were minted in Philadelphia, not San Fransisco.

    I stand by my original assessment, and I am 99.999% sure that these dimes are NOT silver, no matter what the jeweler or the OP says.

    Could it be possible that it's plated? Wouldn't be hard to do, but then again weight would make it certain or not.
    The last box of dimes I went thru gave me a chrome-plated '64 roosevelt, thought it was some kind of proof coin at first. Also got a gold plated '86 roosevelt.
