Question
1975 dime no mint
1975 dime no mint  
Hi,

Can you please take a look at this. I know its worth a lot if authentic.

Answer
Hi Richard,

Thank you for the picture.

Sorry but this is just a normal 1975 dime made at the Philadelphia Mint.  P mintmarks were not added to dimes until 1980.

You were probably thinking you had one of the no-s dimes, but those were only made in proof condition, found only in the mint-issued proof sets.  Your coin is definitely not a proof.

Wish I had better news for you,

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
