1944 Dime

Friday 7 March 2003

I found this 59-year-old dime in my pocket:

1944 dime

In all my life, I’ve never seen a dime other than the usual FDR dime. Now, in the 21st century, a Mercury-head dime just shows up in some change. This dime has been kicking around since World War II, and has passed through who knows how many hands? Remarkable.

Just came up with one of these dimes myself, at first i was thinking it was not US coin, looked at it closer and realized what i was holding. I wouldnt sell it no way. i love finding a little history and taking it out to look at from time to time, i have many old coins like it i picked up here and there by accident.

I found one while cahier-ing, thought it was a penny mixed in w/my dimes & after feeling it & looking at it more closely, I learned it was a 1944 Liberty dime. It is "sweet lookin"... think I'll hang on to mine too! OK

I just found one in my change and wondered what it was and it looked it up in the internet and found that it was from World War 2. That's crazy! Is it even worth selling?

My roommate was pulling beets out of our back garden in rural South Dakota, and out with one came a 1944 liberty dime, AMAZING. Gods knows for how long it had been buried there, and I wish it could talk :)

my husband found the 1944 dime and brought it home for me. I'm just curious about the history, why was the dime changed?

My boyfriend just showed me a 1944 and a 1945 liberty dime, which I had never seen before either! I deal with money all the time, and for him to have both of these was pretty cool! I figured someone must have gotten into somebody's collection and used them, that why they were circulating around the same time!
