A dime worth over $10,000 may be found by checking the spare change you've had lying around the house or in your pockets.
Of course, this dime has a particular, extremely rare error and is not just any ordinary dime.
There is a "special strike" error in particular to watch out for.
This kind of error, abbreviated as SMS, can significantly raise the value of a coin, claims a video from coin collector Treasure Town on TikTok.
The 1964 SMS dime that Treasure Town specifically identified as selling for more than $10,000.
The coin collector continues, "The U.S. Mint struck circulation strike coins in 1964, like the ones you'll probably find in your pocket, or proof coins.
The key to understanding this coin's value is to find one with the "SMS" variety.
This is due to the United States Mint's limited-edition "special strike" dimes, which have slightly unique looks.
Due to a coin shortage brought on by an increase in the price of silver in the middle of the 1960s, the U.S. Mint engaged in this practise the most.
According to Processional Coin Grading Services, it was officially sold at auction on April 28, 2019, for $10,200.
