Copies 10 Cent’s…

…the sign said. I pondered. When would this ever be correct? Ten of your cent’s? No. The ‘your’ is already possessive. Ten cent’s copies? Possibly. If you’re talking about copies belonging to someone name Ten cent, but then it would be Ten Cent. These are the things that go through my mind when I see a punctuation malfunction. How can I make it right?
