1945 is considered a common date for Mercury dimes. Look on the back of the coin to see if there's a small mint mark letter next to the E in ONE. It may be blank or there may be a D, S or S. (The W on the front of the coin is the designer's monogram and not a mint mark.)

Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of 12/2011:

Circulated coins - about $3 for their silver content. A D or S mint coin with almost no wear might bring $4.

Uncirculated coins:

No mint mark (Philadelphia): $5 to $68 depending on quality

"D" mint mark (Denver): $5 to $69

"S" mint mark (San Francisco): $6 to $1,790

There is a variety with a very tiny "S" mint mark called a micro "S". Values are:

Almost no wear - $16

Uncirculated - $26 to $390

That's off by about 65 years. Mercury dimes were minted from 1916 to 1945. A dime from 1853 would be called a Liberty dime or Liberty Seated dime.

If it has any wear at all the value is just for the silver about $1.00.

Back in 1903, the nickel was called, the "Liberty" nickel. The name "Mercury" only refers to the dime and came into circulation in 1916. The "Mercury" dime was produced until 1945. In 1946 to present, it is called the "Roosevelt" dime.

The 1943 Mercury dime was struck between 1916 and 1945. Struck .900 silver, it's callec the mercury dime because people thought the liberty image looked like Mercury, roman god of speed. Surprisingly, they have very little value now.
