Each set contains five coins. Mintage: 3,041,506 sets. A small number of Proof 1968-S Dimes were struck without a mintmark. Although Proof coins were being struck at the San Francisco Mint at the time, responsibility for making the Proof dies (and adding the mintmark) rested with the Philadelphia Mint.
Apparently, at least one die was sent from Philadelphia without the mintmark and a small number of "S"-less Dimes were struck and released before the error was discovered. A number of different and exciting very rare varieties may be hiding in your 1968-S Proof Set. Doubled Die Obverse Cent check "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "LIBERTY".
