    1968 No S Dime, PR68 Cameo
    Among the Rarest No S Proof Errors

    1968 10C No S PR68 Cameo PCGS. The 1968 No S dime is among the most elusive of the coveted No S proof issues of various denominations -- only the 1975 No S Roosevelt dime issue is rarer. It was also the first No S issue of the modern era, and one for which no records are available. It is estimated that no more than a couple of dozen were struck, and Cameo examples are the rarest graded, as Deep Cameo pieces are unknown. This gleaming example is well-contrasted and shows no more than a trace of rose color on either side. A single tick on President Roosevelt's cheek is apparently all that precludes a PR69 grade. PCGS reports only five submissions in PR68 Cameo and none finer, although a handful survive in PR67 and PR68 non-Cameo as well (1/16). The last example in this grade certified by PCGS was lot 4199 in our Central States Signature (Heritage, 4/2013), which brought $30,550. The 1968 No S dime is listed as #3 in Scott Schechter and Jeff Garrett's 100 Greatest Modern U.S. Coins.(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 59SA, PCGS# 85245)

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
