Notes:

Talking Points 1965 Dime


This was the first year that the US stopped making silver dimes. That means these coins are worthless as far as there value to a silver collector. The post 1964 dimes are made of what collectors commonly call copper-nickel. A blend of copper and nickel covering a copper core in this case. The value of the metal in this coin is now .02 or 2 cents. Roughly 1/5 the face value. Where are the other 8 cents you ask? Who knows.
