1964 P Roosevelt Dime
Coin Dealer Insight: Whether so many dimes were produced since 1964 was the last year for silver dimes or not, over 2.286 billion dimes were produced with well over 1.3 billion dimes produced at Denver and just under a billion dimes produced from the Philadelphia mint. Truth be told, there was a date-freeze policy in effect to use up the back-stock of silver coin blanks. This meant the 1964 silver Roosevelt dimes were actually struck all the way through 1965 and production of the 1964 Roosevelt dime only ceased in February 1966. You may well imagine several error dimes were produced in 1964 and you'd be right. The most notable error dimes included the 1964 Pointed 9, 1964 Blunt 9, 1964 DDR, 1964 D Blunt 9. 1964 D Pointed 9, 1964 D/D repunch error, 1964 D DDR and the 1964 D DDR Blunt 9 error dimes.
