Roosevelt dimes have been minted since 1946. They were silver from 1946 to 1964. From 1965-present, dimes are copper-nickel clad. Silver, as far as i know, is what people tend to roll search for. 2009 dimes are also worth keeping.
Yeah this, I feel like with edge checking you can find all silver. I periodically check the thicker/shinier ones for Proofs. I have a suspicion that I've missed one or two roosies by edge checking, but eh. I guess you could keep a lookout for 1996Ws, but the chances of finding one in circulation are really slim IMO
Clad roosevelt dimes are just plain boring. Only 2009 had lower mintages, and those don't carry a numismatic premium. I guess I would date/mm check dimes if I was putting together a clad Roosevelt album, but I see absolutely no point in putting one together in the first place, lol. They've switched up the designs on all the other coinage, they really should make some sort of circulating commemorative dime to pique interest in the coin.
A large-size dollar coin fits nicely in a small dollar wrapper, a half dollar fits nicely in a nickel wrapper, and all other coins will fit inside a dime wrapper.
Most of us put together rolls of pre-1960 nickels, but yes, you can do whatever you want. If I were you, and you wanted to sell the most you can, sell pre-1964, NOT including the 64's. There were billions made of each mint mark in that year.
ok....same definition most have for it.
"Do deliver companies like Brinks, pull the silver out of circulation with their sorting machines?
If they did none of us would be finding any! So far it does not seem as if the value of silver has been attractive enough for them to make those costly alterations to their machines."
I have it on good authority, from a Loomis Fargo sorter who lives in the Spokane/CD'A banking region that they began sorting for silvers 2 years ago. All denomintions but dimes and nickels.
I have sorted $10,000 fv worth at a time and have had no luck in the Spokane area on multiple occasions.
Not like when I first started sorting coins when I would pass through the area...I used to score big in Spokane. My best boxes netted over 50 ounces of halves. The average was 3 coins per roll. Those days are long gone.
