As of 07/2009 retail values are over $15,000 for a 1968 proof set where the dime does not carry a mint mark.

That was the first year that proof coins were struck at the San Francisco mint, and one of the die-makers forgot to put the "S" mint mark on a die. Some "S-less" dimes were shipped in proof sets before the error was discovered. Be careful, though. Normal 1968 Philadelphia dimes don't have a mint mark because the P wasn't used on dimes until 1980. A Philadelphia dime can be processed to resemble a proof coin.

The value of a 1968-S proof annual set can range from $7.00 to $10.00.A United States Mint 1968-S proof set original sold for $5, and is now worth around $7-$10. Some 1968 proof sets, however, were released with a dime lacking the S mintmark. These are rare and can be worth up to $15,000.

10 cents. All circulating dimes dated 1965 and later are made of copper-nickel so they have no added value, and can be found in normal change. The only valuable 1968 dime was an error that occurred in some proof sets. 1968 was the first year that proof coins were struck at the San Francisco mint, and one of the die-makers forgot to put the "S" mint mark on a die.

A Proof dime is a dime that has been made using special techniques. Most US Proof coins are struck at least twice, and handled individually with tongs or gloved hands. While modern US Proof coins have a mirror-like background, or field, and satiny devices (raised areas), a Proof from 1941 may be all shiny or have a matte finish. A 1941 Proof dime is a Proof dime minted for 1941. (Note: if the intent was to ask for the value of this dime, see the Related Question "What is the value of a 1941 Proof US dime," a link to which can be found to the left below the blue "pod.")

Current retail value is $5.00. Issue price was $11.00. But look at the dime. If it has no S mintmark the the value jumps to about $1,000.00.

There is no such thing as a 1968 Liberty dime. Winged Liberty (Mercury) dimes stopped being minted in the mid-1940s. All 1968 dimes are Roosevelt Dimes, not silver, not rare, and are worth simply 10 cents unless in proof condition.

The 1969-S dime is a Proof coin, that's why it has higher value.

Unless it's in proof condition, about 10 cents. In proof, a clad 1988S dime is valued at a couple of dollars.
