    A unusual event in the Roosevelt Dime series took place at the West Point Mint in 1996. The 1996 W was included in the Mint's Uncirculated Set, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Roosevelt dime. It was the only dime to bare a 'W' mintmark.

    When grading the Roosevelt dime, the highpoints are FDRs hair and cheek and the flame and horizontal bands of the torch.
