Mercury dimes

| Eriknation

Mercury dimes or winged liberty dimes were minted between 1916 and 1945. They weigh2.50 grams and have 90 percent silver and 10 percent copper. This coin is very collectible because of the silver it contains. My friend once found a 1937 dime on the sidewalk. Some key dates are 1916 D 1942 over 41 1941 over 42. The 1945 S has a size of the date. If its smaller than regulaur its called. A micro s. And dimes dated 1923D or 1930 D are counterfeits. Though not many are in circulation if you get lucky you could find one. So go hoard those dimes!

Wonderful! I also wish to point out... That is not mercury! In fact, it is not even a male! That right there is Lady Liberty. The wings on her cap is a symbol of free thought. I will never call them Mercury Dimes, only Winged Liberty dimes. To call them "Mercury Dimes" is an insult on the engravers work of art! Cya 'round!

Mercury Dimes have always been a favorite of mine, my spousal units simply loves them. You can sometimes buy junk silver and occasionally find a couple of nice examples in them. Nice blog, I really enjoy new folks and their excitement for the hobby just rubs my fur the right way. Well done! Later!

Always enjoy the mercury dimes. Most are save just for the silver. I don't collect them as a set, but have a few regular circulated ones. Would be very exciting to find one in circulation. Probably put in circulation by a fellow collector to promote coin hunting week?

My favorite small coin, I have rolls of them and a complete set. I just like to hoard them. I also received one in change at the Pittsburgh Airport around 2013/2014, that was a great day.

Thanks for an interesting blog. The reason behind the micro s was that it was used for coins for overseas as opposed to regular S for domestic circulation.
