Description

1968 Roosevelt Dime, PR68 Cameo
Rare No S Variety

1968 10C No S PR68 Cameo NGC. During the first year of proof production at the San Francisco Mint, dimes were struck from a die that inadvertently omitted the mintmark (similar occurrences took place in 1970, 1975, and 1983). The mistake was quickly discovered, but not before a small quantity of No S dime proof sets had been delivered. The 1968 issue is the second rarest of the No S proofs, behind the 1975, and is considered a key to the Roosevelt dime series. Examples in PR68 Cameo are extremely rare. As of this writing, NGC has certified only the present coin in PR68 Cameo, with none finer; while PCGS has graded three examples in this grade, with none finer (3/10).
The present coin possesses deeply mirrored fields that contrast noticeably with the fully struck, frosty devices. The brilliant surfaces display a light overlay of pale reddish patina. A small patch of porosity above the I in DIME is all that precludes an even higher grade.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 59SA, PCGS# 85245)
