As a lot of my fellow collectors already know one of my passions are beautifully toned Mercury Dimes. Lately as I have been searching through favorite auction sites, I have been seeing more and more pre-1965 Roosevelt Dimes that also show some wonderful colors and tones. I have been lucky in my bidding to have won a couple of these examples and have been really happy upon receiving them. My photo's are of a 1953-S Roosevelt Dime graded MS65 by PCGS and a 1958-D Roosevelt Dime graded MS66FB also by PCGS. Both now reside in my collection next to my Mercury Dimes who are probably wondering who the heck is this guy and what kinda dime are you! ; ) haha Now these will never replace my Mercury's but I have been noticing toned Roosevelts can go for as much as some toned Mercury's. I have to wonder as time goes by if the next generation of collectors will think of Roosevelts as being "old" and collectable in the same sense that I have thought that about my Mercury's. It's something for the YN's to think about... will you collect Classic older coinage or move forward to newer more modern designs? Now a few words about my blog... After reading it some of you might think, hmmm, this seems familiar. Well, I had pre-written this blog awhile ago and had put aside for a later date. Now in the meantime my "Better-Half and Fellow-Collector" was deciding on what his next blog would be... Can you guess what he choose? Yep, the Roosevelts... So this one's for you Babe ; ) Thanks for reading my blog. Comments are always welcome.
