Silver Planchet Roosevelt Dime Error
In 1965 several Roosevelt Dimes were struck on leftover silver planchets remaining from 1964. The Coinage Act of 1965 removed 90% silver coinage from circulating coins in an effort to cut costs.
While most of the leftover silver planchets from 1964 were melted down or used for proof silver coins, some were either accidentally or purposely used to create a limited number of 1965 Silver Roosevelt Dimes.
