    1965 Dime on a 90% Silver Planchet
    MS62, Rare Transitional Alloy Error

    1965 10C Roosevelt Dime -- Struck on a Silver Dime Planchet -- MS62 PCGS. Facing a coin shortage and a rising price for silver, the U.S. Mint switched to a clad composition in 1965. But there remained a large inventory of silver dime planchets, which were coined in due course, back-dated 1964. We have no auction record of 1964 clad dimes, but several 90% silver 1965 dimes have appeared in our actions, nearly always in AU grades. This is the finest example of the transitional error that we have offered. The lustrous and lightly toned surfaces resemble that of a typical Uncirculated clad dime, except the edge lacks tell-tale red stripe characteristic of the modern alloy.
