Silver Roosevelt Dime Values

The Roosevelt Dime has been minted by the United States government from 1946 until the present day. It is 17.9mm in diameter, and up until and including the issues of 1964 was composed of 90% silver and 10% copper for a net weight of .0723 oz. pure silver. The coin bears the profile of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The Roosevelt Dime will forever be associated with the "March of Dimes" a charitable organization formed 1938 under the name "National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis" to battle polio. There are no rare dates of the Roosevelt Dime, however several dates will command a premium. Like much old U.S. silver coinage a substantial number of the dimes were melted when their silver value outpaced their value as circulating currency.
