Value

The value in circulated condition is worth at least its weight in silver. The silver melt value for this coin is $1.29 as of September 19, 2019. This melt value is calculated from the current silver spot price of $17.83 per ounce.

Both the 1964 dimes with no mint mark and the 1964 D dimes have similar values. In fine to extremely fine condition these coins sell for a slight premium above their scrap silver value. In uncirculated condition the value is around $2.50-3.25 per coin.

Proof coins are available and they are each valued at around $10-15 when graded by a reputable grading company. Graded proof coins with a grade of PR 68+ will sell for more. The Philadelphia mint issued out over 3.9 million collectible proof coins so they aren't rare.

Double Die Error

For the 1964 D series there was a double die error that you should look for. On the reverse side of the coin some of the letters overlap each other. The letters will be a little wider and you can see the slight overlap where the letters are pressed on top of each other. Sometimes this error is hard to see and it's more noticeable on some coins than on others.

The price for this error coin is around $30 in about uncirculated condition. The value can go much higher in uncirculated condition.
