http://economyshop.org) “Buddy, can you spare a dime?” That phrase comes from the Depression-era song—so popular and so timely that it left this permanent trace on culture—Brother, Can You Spare aDime? In 1932 when the song became popular the old Barber dime of 1892-1916 was still in wide circulation, but the Mercury dimes of 1916-1945 were the real contemporaries of the song. There were no Mercury dimes coined in 1932 or 1933, appropriately enough—times were so hard that none were needed. By 1940 the country was getting out of the Depression, and the phrase “Buddy, can you spare a dime?” had lost much of its bite. 4 BARBER DIMES silver: $12 + postage (only USA or Canada) 1906 D 1906 (2 dimes) no mintmark 1908 no mintmark 18 Mercury Dimes Silver: $50 + postage (only USA or Canada) 1917 no mintmark 1920 no mintmark. 1923 (5 dimes) no mintmark 1925 D 1926 no mintmark 1928 no mintmark 1935 (2 dimes) no mintmark 1937 S 1938 no mintmark 1940 (2 dimes)no mintmark 1941 no mintmark 1942 no mintmark If anyone is interested, please PM me for details of the person in charge of handling the sales at the Economy Shop.
