    This last week we received 22 dimes at the Economy Shop and before putting them out for sale at the shop, maybe someone here is interested? (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.
