    1968 No S Dime, PR68
    Ultimate Modern Proof Rarity

    1968 10C No S PR68 PCGS Secure. Scott Schechter and Jeff Garrett rank the 1968 No S Roosevelt dime proof third on their list of the 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins, writing:

    "Any error in the manufacture of a Proof coin is noteworthy because of the considerable amount of special care that is taken in their production. Indeed, Proof-coinage errors are rare across the board. Proof coins missing their mintmark ... are an especially desirable category of coinage and they are aggressively sought-after. They vary in their rarity, and the 1968 No S dime is among the rarest."


    The authors estimate that as many as two dozen examples are in the hands of collectors, while PCGS suggests half as many are out there. Representatives tend to appear at auction about one a year. Brilliant surfaces display reflective fields that produce visible contrast against fully impressed relief elements. Each side is, for all intents and purposes, pristine. Population: 10 in 68, 0 finer (8/16).(Registry values: P1) (NGC ID# 27F3, PCGS# 5245)

    Weight: 2.27 grams

    Metal: 75% Copper, 25% Nickel (Over Copper Center)
