S. manufacturing plants have lore than 41,000 fires annually. By T. B. HAMMER Librarian, American Nunilxmatlc Association In seeking profits on coins taken from circulation, dimes offer a rich hunting ground. Condition is a prime factor in fixing values of dimes, just as in other series. Dimes must be in fine condition, or better. A fine coin shows little or no wear, with all lettering sharp and clear. Several dimes ure worth particularly high values in uncirculated condition—showing no wear and still bright and new in appearance. It is impossible to improve a coin's condition by any process, and some coins have been so dam- aged in cleaning attempts that their value was lost. Since only coins still found in circulation will be considered, this study will cover those of 1892 through 1945. The liberty dime of 1892-1916 was designed by Charles E. Barber and (he so-called Mercury dime of 1916-1945 was designed by A. A. Weinman. None of the Roosevelt dimes is worth more than face value. Mint marks are O, S and D, for New Orleans, San Francisco, and Denver, with none for coins struck in Philadelphia. In the 1892-1916 series, mint marks are found at the bottom of the reverse (tails) side under the wreath, and at the left of the bottom of the reverse of Mercury dimes. The W at rhjhv above the date of Mercury dim«8 is the designer's signature. King of the dimes is the 1894-S of which only 24 were minted. Thev were struck probably in June for bookkeeping purposes and got into circulation The mint received no orders to strike dimes that year, so the 24 became great rarities. They occasionally appear on the market, bringing up to $2,000. Most mint marked dimes of 18921916 will bring small premiums In fine condition, with the amount ranging up to 30 or 40 cents for the most common. The 1895-0 tarings up to $13, 1892-S, 1894-0. 1896-0, 1898- S, 1897-0, 1901-S, 1903-S, and 1904-S up to $3 or $4; 1893-0. 1893-S, 1896- S, 1897-S. 1898-0, 1898-S, 1899-S, 1900-0, 1902-S, and 1913-S 50 cents to $1 or $1.50.
