Next item up for bid, a rare coin of mine Is one 1894 s silver Liberty dime Only 24 of these coins were minted that year That is, in San Francisco, let me be clear In case anyone here has a thought to purloin We have guards and cameras on this valuable coin It's merely speculation why so few were minted The fact is, that's all, they permitted The superintendent gave most to banker friends But three were given to his daughter to spend She spent one on ice cream, the other two she saved After that,there whereabouts weren't written on page The chances of you seeing another one like this Couldn't be calculated on one hundred abacuses This perfect coin is the best ever seen And the last one that sold went for two million green If you've deep pockets, want to impress your friends My rare silver dime must surely make you grin For two million I'd say, "Going once" at that price But now 2.5 million I'd say, "Going twice" Anything over that I would gladly let it go Pay three million right now and I'll holler, "SOLD" By Daniel Turner

Hi Daniel, Congratulations on your win in the contest. Really like this one Daniel. I do like your history of the coin. If we take all the coins ever brought into the world, the amount of those that have true monetary value are very small, or so it seems. A good job you didn't have me bidding on the coin Daniel. I was known to get caught up in the situation and overbid. Enjoyed this piece Daniel. This is deserving of a seven and goes into my faves....Vlad.

I have a few silver dimes but doubt they are worth more than the price of the silver...good luck in the contest

Right now the price of silver is floundering. Best just hang onto them. Someday soon America will do away with currency and we will all live on virtual cash(debit cards) Then all coins and paper money will rise in value as America tries to reel it all back in Peace my friend and thank you:)

Thank you,S1. It really makes it kinda rough when one has to put dates in sentences. Too many extra syllables. Peace my friend and have a blessed day:) Ciao!
