I picked this up awhile back for my slabbed birth year set but didn't ever post it because I didn't think there was any interest in proof Roosevelt dimes. (Apparently there's quite a bit of interest!)

Not exactly HQ photography but it gets the job done.

That being said, I'd love to find a double-struck ANYTHING in circulation...

Another one, 1955 in an old NGC soap bar, PF68 with some pretty peripheral toning, nice partial rainbow on the back.

I never could and still can't get this coin to photograph nicely, I would love to see what PCGS would do with it for a TrueView. I don't usually post acquisitions like this when I can't get the photos right but there seems to be enough interest to warrant it.

That red-brown-blue peripheral toning sure is pretty . There was an earlier thread about a probable pre 1927 Buffalo nickel also double-struck in a low grade.

PS Dearborn, those reverse proofs are interesting enough I myself picked up the dime version a few weeks ago just to have one .

Why is that, Jbuck? Because Roosevelt was Ike's Boss? Hmmm?
Because our little dime gets no love. The dime has not changed since 1946. The cent has had seven reverses, the nickel has three obverses and five reverses, the quarter has had... a LOT! Sure, the half dollar has had the same design, but for eighteen years less and has been mostly NIFC for the last twenty. No comparison.

The dime needs more love! Keep them coming, everyone!

Hey jbuck, if you insist this was part of the three coins shown earlier, a 1926-S semi-key Mercury dime which I picked up for a little over 20 bucks. Now I and the dealer were understanding that this dime may have been in someones pocket for some time instead of being whizzed. I personally grade it as a VF-35.



PS, this one upgrades my other one by quite a bit .

The March of Dimes continues with 1951 Silver proof
2010-S -2017-S Silver Proof Roosevelt dimes

And is also concluded, These are the last coins I needed to complete my Dansco Roosevelt dimes. (have every thing I needed to acquire to finish. (including specialty issues)

I would like to know why the 2015 has a nice cameo obverse and not the reverse..

Exonumia - From Daniel Carr at Moonlight Mint, his 2021 Covid-19 Hard Times Token in silver.

His 2020 Covid-19 token is sold out.

Dimes certainly get a lot of love lately.

Interesting. I see you have posted that one on its own to get some attention on it.
