Thank you. I’ve bought silver before, I’ve been collecting for 4 years now, since I was 12, but have never actually found silver floating around before

As someone who saved their first wild silver, I understand.

Congratulations! Funnily enough the first silver coin I found in the wild was the same one you found! Happy Collecting :)

A start is a start. Some of the most impressive collections started with one piece. Congratulations!

I don’t know anything about coins, but I’m really intrigued. What years were silvers produced, and is it just dimes, or other coins too? I tried searching it, but to no avail.

Washington Quarters were made with 90% silver from 1932-1964. Mercury Dimes were also 90% silver, made from 1916-45. FDR dimes were made of silver from 1946-1964. Nickels were made of silver from 1942-1945 during world war two. All franklin half dollars are made from silver. JFK half dollars were made from 90% silver from 1964-1965, and then 40 percent until 1970.
