liberty dime

I found another silver dime yesterday, half buried next to a tree in front of a church. This one's a bit older - date minted was 1944 - and its a Liberty head dime. For all you young whippersnappers (including me), here's a picture of

Text is one and Link is
one. (not a pic I took, I can't focus it enough using my little digital camera). Its a little grungy, but the relief is nice on it - only the E Plurbis Unum is faint.

I also looked at my PTO accrual as I was figuring out the percent on my 403B. 255 hrs. I'm waiting for HR to bring the hammer down. I could call in sick for a few days.

Finally, I'm working on my FCC list. Have about 8 that I'd like to follow, so 2 more and I'm done. Thank you scfr for a couple of more ideas.

I've been saving relatively crisp $1s and a couple of $5s for the Vietnam trip. So far I have about $30. Because I'm saving for the trip, I've decided to slow down the tip box savings, and return to it in March. I'm now reading and taking notes in a notebook, to bring on the trip.

    I've found 3 dimes this last month, which is a bonanaza for me. Unfortunately none were liberty Smile Congrats

    Are liberty dimes more valuable? If so, is there an easy way to cash in on that value?

  3. baselle Says:

    Liberty dimes are made of silver, so the silver content makes the dime worth about $1.50. Probably the easiest way is the coin shop, using the coin version of the Blue Book price. There's a blue book (price the dealer will give you) and a red book (price the dealer will charge should you want to buy) prices on coins.

    I don't know whether I'd want to sell it - I think its just neat to have a coin minted during WWII, or before the Depression, or during the Depression.
