For several different years, some proof Roosevelt Dimes from the San Francisco Mint were struck without the "S" mintmark. For each occurrence, the "No S" Proof Roosevelt Dimes are rare. In a few situations, the coins are significant rarities with only a handful known to exist.

The 1968 "No S" Proof Roosevelt Dime was the first situation. Responsibility for making proof dies rested with the Philadelphia Mint and production took place at the San Francisco Mint. At least one die was sent from Philadelphia lacking the "S" mint mark. A small number of dimes were struck with the die and released before the mistake was discovered. Approximately 12-14 examples are known in all grades. One of these, graded by PCGS as PR68 Cameo, sold for an astonishing $48,865 in September 2006.

Two years later in 1970, more proof Roosevelt Dimes were struck without a mint mark. This time production from an entire die pair was released before discovery, resulting in an approximate mintage of 2,200 of the 1970 "No S" Proof Roosevelt Dimes.

The 1975 "No S" Proof Roosevelt Dime emerged as the rarest of this error type. An extremely small number of proof coins missing the mint mark were released. The coins were so rare that they were not discovered until 1978 when two examples surfaced. These coins are now considered one of the major rarities of the 20th century with an estimated 2 to 5 pieces known. No examples have been graded by either PCGS or NGC.

One more time in 1983, proof dimes were minted without the "S" mint mark and released in some proof sets. The mintage is estimated at the life of a proof die, which at the time was 3,000 to 3,500 coins.

The 1971 "No S" Proof Jefferson Nickel represents one of the true rarities of modern proof coinage. Examples are always in demand, especially with deep cameo surfaces.

A small number of proof coins struck at the San Francisco Mint for inclusion within the 1971 Proof Set were mistakenly produced without the "S" mint mark. Statements later provided by Mint officials established the number of 1971 "No S" Proof Jefferson Nickels at 1,655. This represented only a minuscule portion of the total 3,220,733 proof sets sold by the Mint.

Collectors might want to double check their 1971 Proof Sets to see if the rare nickel is included, although chances are slim.

Similar situations of the mint mark missing from modern proof coins had occurred with the 1968, 1970, 1975, and 1983 "No S" Roosevelt Dimes.

The 1990 "No S" Proof Lincoln Cent is one of several occurrences when a proof coin was struck at the San Francisco Mint without the "S" mint mark. Other examples include the 1968, 1970, 1975, and 1983 "No S" Proof Roosevelt Dimes. Generally, only a small number of such mistakes are produced and released, which makes for big premiums for discovered examples.

The mistake for the 1990 Proof Lincoln cent occurred when the Philadelphia Mint, which makes the dies used by the San Francisco Mint, failed to put the mint mark on one of the Lincoln Cent obverse dies. As a result, one production run of approximately 3,500 cents were struck with "No S" mint mark. These coins represent a rarity that is in steady demand, with prices into several thousand dollars.
