You had my immediate attention there. I've been laboriously assembling this series over the past six years and down to 31 for a complete date/mint mark run. If you like a challenge, and are extremely patient, then this is a series to shoot for. Yes, better than two-thirds go for $300 into the five figure range. But the end result will be impressive as few have achieved as much.

The addition of the arrows indicated the Mint decreased the amount, but not the fineness, of silver in the dime.
