1968 Dime Premium

Post by DarkSki » Thu Jun 11, 2020 7:20 pm

Hello Everyone,

Rather confused about the 1968 50% Silver Dime listing on the site, it shows this dime at a higher price than 80% silver dimes when I am assuming it should only be worth about 70 cents per coin in silver value.

Were these coins made in limited quantities or is this a price listing oversight ? Theres no way I would pay 2 bucks a coin for 50% silver.

Remember that the values listed are suggested numismatic values based on the corresponding grade. Therefore if someone wanted to sell/buy a coin based on that condition they can use these amounts as a 'reference'. When there's a dash it usually represents either its face value or its bullion value, whichever is higher.

Remember to take into account the type of buyer. A silver buyer would definitely not pay that much because they don't care about the grade (scarp price-refine cost). A numismatic collector would pay that if they get it in high enough grade relative to book value to add to their collection.
