Some dimes have no mint marks on them but some dimes do have an S mint mark. If the dime were to have an S mint mark but it is not present on it then it can be due to the accumulation of grease-filled dies or it can also be due to over-polishing of the dime. But in some dimes, the S mark was never punched in the die when coins were struck.
