    Extremely Rare 1968 No S Dime, PR68

    1968 10C No S PR68 PCGS. Technically an error, but a highly valuable and collectible one, the first dimes without a mintmark were seen mid-year 1968. Perhaps because of the small size of the coin and its mintmark, Quality Control in the mint overlooked the lack of a mintmark on a small number of proof dimes. Estimates of the number of survivors range from 15 to 25 pieces. To date (3/09) 21 coins have been certified by PCGS and NGC combined. The No S 1968 is the key to the Roosevelt dime series and the number of pieces known today limits the number of truly complete sets that can be assembled of this popular modern series. This is also one of the finest examples known with 12 other PR68 coins certified (by both services), seven of which are Cameo coins in this grade. Deeply mirrored, the surfaces are essentially flawless with just the slightest accent of golden patina present.(Registry values: P1)
