Cb3225_oshwin's 1963 Us Roosevelt Dime (90% Silver)

This is Cb3225_oshwin's 1963 Us Roosevelt Dime (90% Silver) .

The Mercury dime was replaced in 1946 by the Roosevelt dime, designed in honor of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who died in April 1945.

Although other coins were eligible for an updated design (the design of any coin may be changed without Congressional approval after 25 years), the dime was chosen due to Roosevelt's work in founding the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, even then unofficially known as the March of Dimes, a name it later officially adopted.
