A Proof dime is a dime that has been made using special techniques. Most US Proof coins are struck at least twice, and handled individually with tongs or gloved hands. While modern US Proof coins have a mirror-like background, or field, and satiny devices (raised areas), a Proof from 1941 may be all shiny or have a matte finish. A 1941 Proof dime is a Proof dime minted for 1941. (Note: if the intent was to ask for the value of this dime, see the Related Question "What is the value of a 1941 Proof US dime," a link to which can be found to the left below the blue "pod.")

August 21, 2009 The 1983 no "S" dime proof set has a value of $1000.

The 1937 Winged Head or "Mercury" dime is worth about $0.99-$2.50 However, proof or mint state coins can be worth $40+++

Because this date is so common most are only valued for the silver, about $3.00.

As of 07/2009 retail values are over $15,000 for a 1968 proof set where the dime does not carry a mint mark. That was the first year that proof coins were struck at the San Francisco mint, and one of the die-makers forgot to put the "S" mint mark on a die. Some "S-less" dimes were shipped in proof sets before the error was discovered. Be careful, though. Normal 1968 Philadelphia dimes don't have a mint mark because the P wasn't used on dimes until 1980. A Philadelphia dime can be processed to resemble a proof coin.

Average current value for an 1981 proof set is about $8.00. The 1982 proof set is the year that is known for the dime to be missing the mintmark.

yes I have this coins

It is really hard to describe what a proof coin looks like in text. But the coin will have mirror-like fields (the part of the coin with no design) and will be exceptionally well struck. All bands on the reverse of the coin should be distinguishable and separate. A 1941 proof dime is worth quite a bit and should never be handled with your hands as the oils will damage the delicate surfaces. Instead, if you think you have a proof coin, take it to a coin dealer and he will tell you if it is indeed a proof dime or merely a business strike coin.

It is gold plated and therefore is only worth what a normal (damaged) 1941 dime is worth, which is about $2.20 or so in scrap silver.

No rare 1941-S dimes. The 1941-S Mercury dime does have large and small mintmark varieties as do all coins (except the half dollar) that were struck in San Francisco in 1941, they have no added value.

A Good Time for a Dime was created on 1941-05-09.
