Why the comparison with a Mercury Dime??
First of all, the Mercury Dime (or Winged Liberty Head dime) was produced by the
United States government from 1916 to 1945. The coin weighs 2.5 grams
and is composed of 90% silver and 10% copper. For example, today's current Roosevelt dime is composed of 0% silver.
So, when I believe a Silver medal or charm has
some age to it, I'll use a Mercury Dime from 1943 (almost 70 years old and
90% real silver) in a picture together with it. This can be
an invaluable aid in judging age. In fact, the comparison shows you not only the size, but what the
standard patina and wear really look like on a 70 year old coin. You
can judge for yourself whether the charm/medal has more or less
wear/patina than the coin and is, therefore, more or less old than the
coin.Thanks for looking!
