    Extremely Rare 1968 No S Dime, PR68

    1968 10C No S PR68 Cameo PCGS. The June 28, 1968 edition of Coin World announced the discovery of this rare modern Mint error. Created by a failure to affix the mintmark to one of the proof dies for this year, the 1968 No S was found in the Mint Bureau's sealed plastic containers as part of proof sets. In the 1988 book Walter Breen's Complete Encyclopedia of United States and Colonial Coins, the author opines that approximately six specimens are known. This is one of only two Cameo-designated example at PCGS (none have been certified as Deep Cameo, 2/04), and it is a bright, untoned proof. Razor sharp striking definition is seen throughout, the frosty finish over the devices contrasting markedly with deep mirrors in the fields. Essentially blemish-free with all the eye appeal one would expect for the assigned grade.
    From the Eric A. Kreuter Collection.(#85245) (NGC ID# 59SA, PCGS# 85245)
