What's a fair price to pay for one?

Finding a 1996-W in circulation is a once in a lifetime find. Although they're very "common" in high grades, if I found one in circulation it'd be worth more to me than a brilliant example simple due to its provenance. It made a very interesting trip to get to your pocket. :-)


Yes, there's never anything wrong with having a circulated example of a coin or anuncirculated one from circulation. In many cases the circulated coin is distressingly common and this applies to most moderns but not to the '96-W. In this case it's the circulated one that is scarcer. Normally when this happens like with the '50-D nickel there is almost no spread in price so the circ will be worth nearly the same anyway.

An even tougher clad dime from circulation is the '82-NMM. There are probably several thousand of the W coin but only a few hundred of the NMM.
Time don't fly, it bounds and leaps.

Charles, yes, your increase in cholesterol paid off!

As everyone said, great find! He definitely looks fairly unscathed. Values start at 4 bucks for an MS63.

That's truly a wonderful find. I've never found one going through a lot of dimes.

Great find! I paid a lot more for mine that you did yours. I need to stop off at the golden arches more often.

I found my 1996-W at my favorite local coin shop. Someone had it in the dollar bin...and I was lucky to find it!
