    Near-Perfect 1970 No S Dime, PR69 Cameo

    1970 10C No S PR69 Cameo PCGS. Collectors first reported the discovery of this Mint error on January 6, 1971. Just shy of two months later, Mint officials admitted that 2,200 1970 No S proof dimes had been produced from a single set of dies. As had happened two years prior with the No S 1968 proof dime, a mint worker neglected to punch a mintmark into the die. The die scratch beneath the right upright of the N in UNITED is diagnostic. This coin looks as fresh, bright, and new as the day it was struck 34 years ago. The fields go absolutely "black" when angled beneath a light, and the devices are nicely frosted--the combination of both providing a stark cameo contrast on each side. Population: 2 in 69, 0 finer (2/04).
    From the Eric A. Kreuter Collection. (#85248) (NGC ID# 59SD, PCGS# 85248)

    Weight: 2.27 grams
