About this journal

After 5 years of searching many auctions, eBay, Coin websites and a bunch of help from fellow registry dime collectors, I added the last coin to complete my 1946-1964 silver Roosevelt Dime Set.

Although my set name is  " common silver but not so common ", that is a very true statement. With only 48 dimes in the set, the quest for a MS67 Full Torch, for the most part is quite easy. However,

there are those dates that just never come up for auction and when they do, the pricing can go through the roof. The last coin I added was a 1961 Philadelphia MS67 FT. A POP of only 14 pieces. The

set does have 4 coins that grade MS68 and maybe in the future I may be able to upgrade them to the MS67 + FT or ms67 * FT.  HMMMMMMM If I could Only get a 2012 D in MS68 FT. Happy hunting

and never give up that quest to complete a set.

It Took Over 3 Years But Finally Have a #1 Set

Roosevelt Dimes In High Grade Full Torch Are Hard To Find..... Hi Everyone, This is my first post so if I do something wrong, it is OK to shoot... Today after a long hard struggle and many lost dimes from auctions I have bid on, I finally made it to #1 in the 1965 to Date Roosevelt Dime Series. It took 100 coins to get to the #1 spot and currently, there are 113 needed for a complete set. With that being said, this set is put together not with just the best coins out there but with the coins most of us can afford. I want to thank EVERYONE who helped me along the way. The coin community out there is a good group of people and for those of you who let me pay for the coins I bought over weeks and months and even over 6 months. THANK YOU. It takes networking to find a lot of these dimes because they are just not out there. Someone out there always knew someone else out there that had dimes and got us together. My next step with this set is to complete it out and hopefully get it to 100K points. Please review when you are able. Thank You All...
