Told you it is possible to find anything in your change. After fifteen months of no silver I got this silver dime in my change two days ago. Just normal change from a supermarket. I noticed the 1946 before anything else, I did not even check the edge to prove it was silver.
Things of note for this particular dime:
- It is worn, weighs 2.47 grams (normal should be 2.50 grams)
- The front is caked with something brown (the less I think about it the better)
- The back is scratched from rim to rim (all value above good is gone)
Here's the stats for this dime...
Type/Country: 10 Cents / United States
Year: 1946 D
Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
Value: $2.46 in G-4 (a silver value of $2.458, a copper value of $0.002)
Do you have a silver coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment / question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.
