Die over-punching the previous year's date caused the 1942/1 Mercury Dime overdate error. It's barely noticeable, but this mistake makes the coin rarer and more valuable. With only a few in circulation, finding one is like finding treasure.

The 1894 San Francisco Barber Dime is rare due to its low mintage. Due to its limited production, the 1894-S edition is prized. Finding this dime in your change is like finding a valuable piece of history.

The 1796 Draped Bust Dime, one of the first US dimes, is a numismatic treasure. This dime, from the early days of coinage, has a delicate Liberty on the obverse and a small eagle on the reverse.

Coin collectors value the low-mintage 1822 Capped Bust Dime. Liberty wearing a Phrygian cap on the obverse and a heraldic eagle on the reverse makes it appealing. Find one in circulation would be miraculous.

Seated Liberty Dimes were scarce at the Carson City Mint in 1874, making the 1874-CC edition valuable. American West pioneers are honoured on this dime's Seated Liberty obverse and wreath reverse.
