    1968 Roosevelt Dime, PR68
    Sought-After No-S Variant

    1968 10C No S PR68 NGC. Proof coinage was traditionally produced at the Philadelphia Mint before 1968, and all dies continued to be prepared there after the San Francisco Mint took over proof coinage that year. The S mintmark was inadvertently left off one die, and the mistake went unnoticed until a small number of coins were struck, resulting in the famous "No S" proof Roosevelt dime of 1968. The same mistake was repeated several times in later years (1970, 1975, and 1983), with similar results.

    This incredible PR68 specimen displays razor-sharp definition on all design elements and deeply reflective fields. Close inspection reveals no visible flaws on the mostly brilliant surfaces, with just a wisp of light gold toning on both sides. Exceptional visual appeal complements the lofty technical grade. Census: 3 in 68, 2 finer (8/13).
