09 S cent mint mark location

How many dies were used for the obverse of the 1909 S cent. I have a PCGS 62BN that the S is tucked closely up between the first 9 and 0 and just got a PCGS 64RD where the S is much lower under the 0 and a little towards the last 9.

    Six. One of the obverse dies for the S-VDB was reused, and five new obverse dies were used (according to QDB).

    Below are two that might match your description.

    This is the only mintmark position that was used to produce both varieties of 1909-S Cents.
