Being specific with your questions is always a good idea.

Well I'd like to know if they are special in any way and what they are worth.

Neither are anything special, both will be worth silver melt + maybe a small premium on a good day.

Chase007 was completely justified in what they said - ask a specific question, get a specific answer. And, technically, they did tell you something about them.

It was good to see that you oriented your coins properly. You should also crop your photos so that others can see the images more clearly. That way they might see an important detail that might be overlooked in an uncropped version.

Those are not rare dates, but are worth silver content.

It's as easy as going to eBay and looking under "sold items", and find a sold coin that looks to be the same condition as your coin. Doing a little research on your own will help you out in the long run.
Here are sold listings for the 1916 Barber dime.

You can go to Numismedia http://www.numismedia.com/rarecoinprices/fmv.shtml for a general idea of value, but you'll have to learn to grade. The 1916 Barber dime from the pictures is probably somewhere in the VG8-F12 range, $3-5.

NGC is a good source for info, tells you a lot about the coin, and melt value is currently $1.98. https://www.NGCcoin.com/coin-explor...coinid-14870

Same for the Mercury dime - look it up.

The 41'S has a large S and the regular small S variety, but judging with the current photo you have, it is a small S. The premium is for the large S and it has to be at least in AU condition to warrant some premium. IMHO!

The one dime on the left is a Barber dime from the last year of issue (1892-1916) and to me grades about an VG-8. The other one is a Mercury/winged Liberty dime 1941-S in around an XF-40 or so. These were minted (1916-1945). Both 90% silver, and nothing too special here, but still nice to have around for keeps.
