    No, and it doesn't exist

    If you think you have one, can you post a picture?

    No such thing exists.

    What we'll see is either a beat up coin with damage in the mintmark area, or a plating blister.

    It's probably just a die chip.

    At that late date, the mint marks were on the hubs and not being punched into the individual dies. There's no easy way for that to happen. And, if it did happen, there would be tens of thousands of coins out there.

    @Markcapps.... Welcome aboard.... Likely some Post Mint Damage (PMD), but show us a picture and we can give you a conclusive answer. Cheers, RickO

    I believe by that time the mintmark was not punched separately into the die, so it would technically be impossible.

  • How do I post a picture

    A decent picture, but not a D/S. I suspect it is a ripple in the copper plating caused by the radial expansion of the planchet past the edge of the D in the die.

    Welcome aboard and congratulations on posting your first picture link. :)
    Next time try using the "attach image" button listed above. It is the "landscape picture frame".
    You can try using it over and over by going to the "TESTING FORUMN". This is the last "Board" under "Message Boards".
    Keep up your questions as no matter how expert we are, we learn something new each day and hopefully it is a knowledge on a coin.
