One thing that has always bugged me about dimes is the fact that they are worth more than pennies and nickels but are smaller than both. Is it because FDR was a cripple? He won 4 straight presidential elections, got the US out of the Great Depression, and helped pave the way for an Allied victory in WWII, but couldn’t walk….. makes sense to honor him with a coin, a little tiny coin.
At least you can use them at the meter, for laundry, for bus fare, at the vending machine. It is probably the most practical coin beside the quarter, but that doesn’t mean much.
