Is there a faster way to identify these? There must be a system of elimination? I look at mintmark placement then distance from date and finally which number looks like the RPM. Still not sure of CW,CCW, NORTH,SOUTH, ETC.

Ha, no quick way. You just have to get used to it. This is why so many stay away from attributing 60's RPMs.

It helps to at least post a link to what you think it is to get more help.

Doesn't appear to be it, looks like yours may be slightly south and angled-back a bit more.

Quick overlay with dates [mostly] aligned:

The way you're doing it is the right approach. It gets faster as you develop your eye and learn what's out there, but it's never "fast" when you're dealing with hundreds of similar minor varieties. Honestly, for ones this minor, I would usually just stick em un a tube labeled "minor LMC RPMs" and be done with it.
My best finds:
1996 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/372066
1995 DDO-001/FS-101: http://goccf.com/t/376071#3225244
1972-P DDO-008/FS-108: http://goccf.com/t/405558
2000-D Maryland Quarter Rotated Die http://goccf.com/t/394553

hey! I see you are up to the 1960's now, moving right along. I'm glad you are being meticulous about it and sticking to one date/MM for each set - that makes it easier and a little faster as you learn what to look for.
Anyway. I do see a split serif at the bottom of the D's upright. Start there and go to VV, copper coins and others that I can't think of at the moment and do a comparison.

I have been trying to do an overlay in my head (go figure0 I can't line up a picture right.

I am not even interested in RPMS but before I save them, I am checking for BIE'S and a miracle doubling of IN GOD WE TRUST or something like that. I will admit I like finding the obvious ones. I seems the 1960-d doesn't have RPMS that are easy to spot. If I see a double serif then I go from there. If there are no easy markers I move on . I have been unbelievably lucky from 1954 to 1959 having found a number of them. I think this sh@t is like the casino where they let you win the first time so you keep coming back. LOL I really mean it, thanks for all y'all guys help. I feel I am slowly developing a better eye (slowly). I did try to post the # RPM I thought it might be

next time, post close up pictures of areas that have die scratches.

agree that it aint RPM-063.

maybe 1mm-163 http://www.coppercoins.com/lincoln/...ie_state=mds

possible die markers that match but with the pictures not being close ups, one bum eye and one sleepy eye, I cant be sure.

nice looking coin

SIDE NOTE: for RPMs, I recommend using side by side pictures instead of overlays.

There are things you can do to narrow down your search, such as:

distinguish between the large date and small date varieties [varietyvista.com s/d varieties are <=100]; double split-serif types are often labeled as 'rotated' and single as 'tilted'; north/east/west and south refer to the secondary/original mintmark in relation to the primary mint mark [and tend to be the lower numbered RPMs], whether the mint mark is above or below the bottom of the 9, etc., etc.

It can be very time-consuming: Good luck with it.

edit: and to make it more frustrating, many of the split-seif types don't even seem to be listed. Heh, you may end up pulling out your hair.
