    Surprising 1968-D Roosevelt Dime
    Struck on a Silver Planchet, AU55

    1968-D Dime--Struck on a 90% Silver Planchet--AU55 NGC. 2.5 gm. This piece circulated only briefly before it was saved and recognized for its special nature. Exactly how a 90% silver planchet was struck in 1968 is a mystery, but the weight is consistent with the old silver planchets rather than the new clad composition, and examination of the edge shows no reddish line to suggest a copper core. Unusually well-detailed for the issue, a further clue.
