I thought this RPM was sweet so I posted for others to see. Also, to double check as to whether I am correct. Strange things are happening since this is the 5th RPM I have found while searching a roll when it was in the first 5 coins I searched in that roll (if I remember correctly I didn't find another one in the other rolls LOL). I am sure I jinxed myself since I have not searched the remaining coins in that roll. Please let me know if I did this one right. Especially Dearborn since he has been patiently and religiously helping me through these.

Very nice find and the coin looks to be in excellent condition as well.

Agree that it's most likely RPM-005, which is actually a tripled RPM, with the split serifs visible distinguishing the first D and the second D and then a third punch southwest of the first two.

What I think you're seeing as indicative of a sideways MM is actually the upper left corner of the D, rather than the lower left corner, so the mark has been moved slightly down and to the left, but not rotated.

VV has some really good shots if this RPM:

Here are two more of the RPM's (five in all). I took pics of the die scratch in Y of LIBERTY and the column on reverse, seems to fit Stage B or C

There are some Memorial RPMs that are really different looking:
