Question regarding a prooflike 1949-S Roosevelt Dime

I have a 1949-S Roosevelt Dime purchased about 25 years ago. When the dealer sold it to me he wrote on the paper inside the coin flip that if I ever sold the coin that he be contacted for the first offer to re-buy. The dealer has subsequntly retired from the coin business. My question is this: Is there a certification service that would possibly encapsulate the coin and identify it (on request, perhaps?) to be a prooflike if they agreed with this designation? Thanks in advance for any help.


  • ricardouno,

    The major grading services do not use the "prooflike" designation on coins of that type.
  • Mark,

    Thanks so much for the prompt response to my inquiry.

  • I just now saw this old post while searching for information on 1949-s Roosevelt Dime with prooflike surfaces. I recently bought a set and the dime had a film on it so I dipped it and to my surprise it had prooflike surfaces. Searching on NGC I see they list a 1949-s PL and their census shows 11 graded if I read it correctly. What did you ever find out about yours? There is also on the Google search where someone sold one graded by NGC MS63 PL.

    PCGS also now designates PL if they feel any coin is worthy
