According to the red book, which is the leading source for coin values, the price of the coin would be between 12-30 dollars depending on what it would be graded as. However, if you are looking to sell it, I would go onto eBay and see what the price is going for, that's what you would most likely get.

For 1945 mercury dimes, full bands can raise their value to $500 (MS-60) to $10,000 (MS-65). However, full bands are very rare on 1945 dimes. Have your dime professionally appraised.

Since my grandmother presented me with the dime in 1950, it has been sealed airtight & remains bright, no color change & was rated MS-65 in 1960 ( I found the card). I do not wish to mail it anywhere & know no one I trust for appraisal. Thanks.  add a comment

Since the prices on coins are constantly fluctuating you should get it appraised by a coin dealer. What you may think is perfect may actually not be perfect.
