Are you suggesting that the us mint punched a tilded "n"? Unlikely... It looks like it took a hit right above the n. The "e" could be something else, but it definitely looks damaged. Sorry, but keep hunting! We'll wait for some experts though
I collect PCGS rattlers, ANACS Photo Certs and 1st Generation holder, Sample Slabs and all TPG out of business slabs, and 1881-S dollars. Most dealers don't know why anyone would collect this stuff, But I do and have been having fun with it for about ten years now.
