    1968 No S Roosevelt Dime, PR68
    Premier Modern Proof Rarity

    1968 10C No S PR68 PCGS. FS-501. All proof coin varieties with missing mintmarks are highly sought-after, but the 1968 No S proof Roosevelt dime is one of the rarest of all. During this period, working dies were made in Philadelphia and shipped to the branch mints, where their respective mintmarks were later added before coinage. The 1968 No S proof dime was created when the mintmark was omitted from a proof die. It is apparent that mint personnel quickly realized the error and changed out the die, as few examples of the No S dime are known to exist in any grade. PCGS and NGC combined have certified only 39 pieces (9/14), and even this low figure likely includes a number of resubmissions. In their 100 Greatest U.S. Modern Coins, where the 1968 No S dime is ranked as high as number three, Scott Schechter and Jeff Garrett suggest as few as 24 examples are in the hands of collectors.

    This piece is boldly struck, with deeply mirrored fields and outstanding preservation. A faint blush of light golden toning adds a degree of warmth to each side. Population: 9 in 68, 0 finer (9/14).(Registry values: P1)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 27F3, PCGS# 5245)

    Weight: 2.27 grams

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