How to tell what US coins are SILVER
I explain what coins where minted in silver and how to tell.
I have some of them yay
What about 1964 nickels? I have one.
So my 1875 dime is silver
Wow I totally thought quarters from 1965 through 1970 were 40% silver. And here I was saving them up like a retard.
Darn I sold a lot of good stuff because for some reason I thought 1957 and before were 90 % silver
I have 2 dollar coins, one 1888 and one 1899
For the Kennedy Half dollar 1964. Why does ebay have some for 4k and 4 dollars ?
Thank you for the historical perspective.
I have some of thoses
Franklin halves are all 90% silver. That’s another way to tell too. They were produced between 1948 and 1963 (the year Kennedy was assassinated) and so by 1964 (the last year U.S. coinage were 90% silver) they redesigned the half dollars to honor President Kennedy. From 1965 to 1970 the (Kennedy) half dollars were 40% silver while the rest (dimes & quarters dated 1965 to present) are made of copper core with nickel cladding.
I have a silver dollor coin of floating hairs Liberty 1795..interested buyers contact me on 9760125559
Also I have a 1977 Eisenhower dollar coin. Is that real silver as well?
Interesting! Thanks for sharing your brain bits!
@bennygypsy23 Any half dollar before 1964 is 90% silver. I used the JFK half as an example because it was the last half the US produced that had silver in it.
The eisenhower or ike dollar were minted 1971-1978
19 65 through 70 quarters are 30% silver
I have the 1971 Eisenhower uncirculated in the original plastic bag
1970 Kennedy half dollar is 40% silver
