    Okay, I'll start this out here.

    How much is a 1964 Roosevelt Dime Graded MS64 by PCGS worth?

    Not a lot. There are approximately a bazillion 64' dimes minted, they were the last year of silver, so people kept them in uncirculated hordes, in which a MS64 would probably be below average...
    I'd pay melt.

    PCGS priceguide says 10$, which is a laugh.

    PCGS Price Guide is $10. In reality it’s not even worth that much. I say $5 tops.

    "Worth" is really the problem word here. "How much do people pay" for that coin presently would be an indication of how many slices of bread you could get for it.
    I used to think I was getting deals by finding coins below priceguide, VERY expensive misunderstanding.

    There is, actually, a "covert" reason for this question. I was guessing that the real value wouldn't be much more than the melt value, however . . . . . . . who would have one of these slabbed?

    As far as what I see on ebay, they all sell between $5 and $150, but they are all sample slabs that are offered... which is why I think it varies so greatly because of sample slab type collectors and how many there happen to be of the particular sample slab created. It's not really representative of the coin in the slabs value.

    Great Collections had some regular MS 64 auctions of PCGS like 8 years or so ago that were like $10-$15 but this isn't representative really either, MS 65 sell for less than $10.

    Less than $10.00 but I doubt I'd pay $5.00 myself.

    Well dang, I didn't think to look on Fleabay to see if these were common or not. Dumb me.

    I wasn't sure just how many PCGS handed out back in the 1980's when they were getting started. I figured not many newer collectors these days would have seen one of these. I remember PCGS trying to establish themselves in the collecting community and they would sent these out just for the asking.

    Back when they were distributing these, gold and silver were at dismally low prices and there wasn't much interest in collecting at that time. Disco was in full swing and the nations attention, post Vietnam, was elsewhere.

    Anyway, here are a couple photos, for the folks who have never seen one of those "Sample" PCGS slabs . . . .

    Ooh, any milk spot collectors around?

    I've got a couple of 61-63 mint sets spotty as hell.

    Rodney Cole I do not keep error coins.

    I am the mint set collector. Milk spots are no problem.
