Does this also apply to the Silver coins ?

I have several silver coins that have a flat groove but Charlton and Canadian Coins do not mention any thing about this.

Will try and get a pic.

OK so both of these are silver, do they look the same or different?

One type was minted in Ottawa and the other in Philadelphia.

Yes I know that but my ? is, "was the silver 1968 minted in both places"

The pic above shows 2 silver 1968 and it looks like one is from Ottawa and the other Philly.

It might be possible they shipped several silver dime planchets to the other mint by accident. It happens sometimes there have several reports of silver coins of years where they are not supposed to be silver.

Thanks Hunter it could have happened that way, I have 6 silver 1968 dimes with a flat groove.

I forgot about that thread.

But we still don't have a definite answer.

I have been told several times by "experts" that Philadelphia did not mint silver dimes for 1968. I also have a 1968 dime with flat grooves on the reeded edge but no one seems to believe me that it is silver. They all say I must be wrong.


Both dimes are silver and 1968

Weights of the coins would prove it.

Very interesting. I knew of the different grooves, but had always thought they were just clad also.
