TreasureGirl's New Preciouses


Recommended Posts

Got a 1941 Mercury, around Fine and an AG (if that) Standing Liberty whose date is worn off, what grade does that make it? All my materials are back home -.-: It looks atrocious, pics to follow, but it was my first SLQ and the two together were $1.60 at the flea market.


P.S. The same guy was trying to pass a 1968 Roosie as silver... which is why I always double check.


P.P.S. Are 1957 quarters from Canada silver?

The dime? No... really? I knew Kennedys were 40% from 65 to 69 but thought all Roosies were Cu-Ni throughout 65 and later.

Roosevelt dimes 1965 to date are made up of (.750 copper, .250 nickel) bonded to an inner core of pure copper. That means no silver unless it was a proof roosevelt.


There were no US proof coins in 1965 and when they started up the proofs again in 1968 they were Copper/nickel too.

Thanks guys! I'm so excited about it!


I'm also tickled about these guys I got from Blackhawk:








My first "odd" denominations! Woohoo! I don't feel like such a bum anymore :ninja:
