Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Value of silver U.S. coins


I  have  some Roosevelt  dimes  1964 and prior, most  in excellent condition.  I,also,  have some Washington quarters 1964 and earlier.  Mixed condition.  I wanted to know what I could sell them for  and if this would be just for their silver value. What  type place would be best to take them--coin collector or jewelry store?

Hi Jan
Coin dealers will pay between 18 to 20 times their face value for each coin.  Solets say a dime is worth between $1.80 and $2.

A quarter is 4.50 to $5.

I own Omega Precious Metals on Long Island.  If you are nearby, call me for an appointment.

516.759.6960     They are only worth their silver value.
