No such coin exists. 1964 was the last year for silver dimes, and silver proof sets wouldn't be issued until 1992. If you look at the edge of your coin you should see a copper line running through it. This is because the coin is copper-nickel, a silver coin does not have this line because it is not clad, but rather an alloy of 90% silver and 10% copper.
