Thoughts from those with an eye for RPMS (35-S Buffalo)

I thought this piece would be nice for a short set I was accumulating, then I noticed there seems to be some thing going on with the mint mark. Maybe a better fit for my variety set? My eyesight is past the point of being able to see these well, even with the 10x loupe. What does aboard think? RPM? (there are 10 or so RPM varieties for the date)

    There are 9 listed on VV, but yours needs better focus to really compare.

    Sorry buddy but I need a sharper image to judge.

    The enlarged picture shows some kind of issue... could be an RPM, but too blurry to identify which one. Cheers, RickO

    Its definitely an rpm but as others have said, need a better pic to decide which one. I saw that one on the bay last week and am now kicking myself for not bidding. Looks like a very nice coin.

    From the image it looks like the MM is bleeding into the rim. Otherwise it's some sort of RPM.

    Thanks for the input guys. I would be out of my element trying to get a more detailed image, but have decided I'm comfortable enough with being an RPM to add to my varieties album.
