Which dimes have little value?

Some dimes are only worth face value. Some are not selling too well at this time such as common date, circulated Roosevelt dimes dated after 1964, heavily used dimes, and dimes from the last few years, and common modern dimes. These are VERY common - spend them. They do not sell. We do not buy them unless we are forced as part of a larger collection of good coins.
