@coin, first welcome to CCF. Second, while I agree with the above comments, I would add that perhaps the mintmark has a filled in upper loop. This is somewhat common and is the result of a broken post on the die used to strike this coin. It doesn't add to the value, but could be fun to hold onto until you find a better example.
