    $5 roll of Mercury dimes arrived safely and quickly. It's fun to imagine that some soldiers during World War II might have accidentally carried a few of my dimes with them to Europe or Japan. Some of my older Mercury dimes might have been passed on to a victim of the Great Depression so he or she could buy a cup of coffee or a loaf of bread.

    The dimes are in pretty good shape, as advertised. Most are from 1941-1945, but a few are from the 1930s, and I think one was from the 1920s. The redbook value of all of them was no more than about $3, but still, fun purchase.

    I never expect much from 'average circulated' but I do expect at least good with no issues. In one roll one had a hole, and two looked like they had been hacked by tin snips. Three out of 50 does not make the order worth returning, but I would not buy 'average circulated' halves or dollars based upon the condition of these. The rest were problem free and graded good to very fine with a nice mix of dates and conditions.

        Product came as advertised in Average Circulated condition. Only a couple pretty worn but was able to read all dates. Got a 1926 in decent condition! Mostly received 1930s and 40s. Pretty cool to think these were being used around the time of World War 2. Very pleased.

          I would call this an average circulated roll you could get out of circulation in the mid-60's. F-AU from the 40's, AG-G from the 20's. Nothing spectacular but that is pretty much what I expected.

            Comments about $5 Mercury Dimes - 90% Silver 50-Coin Roll (Average Circulated):

            Figured I would pick up some junk silver to diversify my stack and take advantage of the free shipping promotion. Order came in a nice tight roll of 50, mostly dates in the 40's and the majority of the coins are in decent condition. I did have a Roosevelt sneak in the roll, and a few coins are very worn and damaged. Glad I ordered from APMEX but not sure if I will be ordering these dimes again.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Super fast shipping as usual, very well packaged.

                    I am an avid buyer at Apmex. I love their 90% silver. I had a bad experience buying extra fine merks, so I figured I would just buy a circulated roll. OK range of dates. Some 1917, 1921, but early dates were worn badly. A few Roosevelts found their way in. I believe there were 3. I was not too happy about that, as I am paying a premium. Other than that, no complaints.

                        I love to think my Dad may have had dimes like this in his pocket during World War II. Condition is as described, piece of history, easy on the checkbook and 90% silver. What's not to like?

                                I don't expect my house to burn down but if it does I have insurance. Likewise, I don't expect the economy to tank or our currency to fail but what if I'm wrong? I buy these precious metals as insurance against the unexpected. I don't really see them as a good investment and if they never increase in value I'll be happy as that means my investments in equities and bonds remain strong. As for Apmex, I am perfectly pleased with their performance. I pay by personal check and the process takes two weeks which is fine with me. I expect to continue accumulating.

                                        Bought this specifically for the smaller denomination. Easier to use / sell when needed. Packaged perfectly. I really wanted to open the roll but it's so clean and tight I left it alone. I will definitely be buying more of these!
