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.

When I believe a Silver medal or charm has some age to it, using a Mercury Dime from 1943 (almost 70 years old and 90% real silver) in a picture together with the charm or medal can be an invaluable aid in judging age. The comparison shows you not only the size, but what the standard patina and wear really look like on a 70 year old coin and 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.From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia website:Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% other metals, usually copper. The minimum millesimal fineness is 925.

Fine silver is 99.9% silver or better. This grade of silver is used to make bullion bars for international commodities trading. In the modern world Fine Silver is understood to be too soft for general use.

Britannia silver is purer than sterling, at least 95.84% silver and up to 4.16% copper. Its marks were Britannia and a lion's head in profile.

Mexican silver is also purer than sterling, usually 95% Silver and 5% Copper. Much of the currently produced silver jewelry and other decorative silver objects made in Mexico at the present time are made according to the Sterling, i.e. 92.5% silver, standard, and are marked "Sterling".

Nickel Silver is a metal alloy of copper with nickel and often but not always zinc. It is named for its silvery appearance, and contains no elemental silver. Other common names for this alloy are German Silver, Paktong, New Silver and Alpacca (or Alpaca).

German silver (not to be confused with nickel silver, which is also referred to by this same term)is actually several silver standards that are used in Germany. However, the most common standard for flatware and decorative silver objects is the 800 standard (80% pure silver). Hence, when the term German silver is used, it is usually referred to as the 800 standard. Another silver standard in use is the 900 standard. German silver objects are usually marked with an "800" or "900" to show the standard to which they are made.Thanks for looking!
