    The Certified Roosevelt Dime 1968-S DDR PF67 FS-020-3 NGC is a remarkable specimen within the Roosevelt Dime series, known for its unique variety and exceptional grade. Introduced in 1946 to honor President Franklin D. Roosevelt's contributions to the nation, the Roosevelt Dime quickly became an integral part of American coinage.

    The design of the Roosevelt Dime features a left-facing portrait of President Roosevelt on the obverse, created by John R. Sinnock. The reverse showcases an olive branch, torch, and oak branch, symbolizing peace, liberty, and strength, respectively. This enduring design has remained largely unchanged since its introduction, with only minor modifications over the years.

    The 1968-S Roosevelt Dime was struck at the San Francisco Mint, one of the key facilities responsible for producing coinage for circulation in the United States. The San Francisco Mint has a rich history dating back to the California Gold Rush era and continues to play a significant role in minting coins for the nation.

    Within the 1968-S Roosevelt Dime mintage, the coin in question exhibits a Doubled Die Reverse (DDR) variety, specifically identified as FS-020-3 by variety specialists. Doubled dies occur when the coin dies are engraved with a slight doubling of the design elements, resulting in a distinct and noticeable doubling effect on the struck coin.

    The FS-020-3 variety of the 1968-S Roosevelt Dime is particularly notable for the doubling present on the reverse of the coin, specifically on the lettering and torch design elements. This variety adds an element of intrigue and uniqueness to the coin, making it highly desirable among collectors and enthusiasts.

    The Certified Roosevelt Dime 1968-S DDR PF67 FS-020-3 NGC has been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) with a grade of PF67. This indicates a Proof strike with minimal imperfections and excellent visual appeal. Coins in PF67 grade exhibit sharp details, attractive surfaces, and strong eye appeal.

    Furthermore, the designation of FS-020-3 signifies the specific variety within the FS-020 series of Doubled Die Reverse varieties for the Roosevelt Dime. This variety is cataloged and recognized by specialists in the field, further enhancing the coin's appeal to collectors.

    Overall, the Certified Roosevelt Dime 1968-S DDR PF67 FS-020-3 NGC represents a fascinating and collectible piece of American numismatic history. Its unique variety, exceptional grade, and provenance from the San Francisco Mint make it a prized addition to any Roosevelt Dime collection.
