1953-S Mint Mark Touching Date LWC

Just something I thought was interesting

I know the mint mark was put on by hand and this is not that uncommon.

Has anyone found a overlapping one? Or another touching one?

Was going through a roll noticed the mint mark was close to date on high percentage. I was hoping to find one overlaping the date. But this one was the closest it is touching the date.

Common approximate placement of mint mark

There is no common mint mark location. The location is under the date, to the right of the bust. That area is acceptable for location. They can be close to the date or real low. They are hand added so they will vary until 1990 when they are now part of the design of the coin. The varied locations for pre-1990 coins is a plus to help identify RPMs and doubled dies for mint mark locations. The Philly ones are harder to determine die numbers for without the mint mark locations.

I should of said the average placement of my data set of 200 coins.. which is a very small data set compared to original quantity.

Yeah they are fun to find.. Cool ones Albert..

I am sure no extra premium .. but I will still keep them separate..

How about some close up images of E.PLURIBUS from the reverse side.
It looks like a possible DDR-001, but I can't tell for sure from what you have posted.

It's not uncommon, but freaky looking.

In the PDS System they are called II-C-16 Displaced Mintmark (touching another design element).

Found also on the 1954S Lincoln Cent.

I have a lot of wheat cents to go through and hope I can find at least one of these. Very cool looking coins.

You are quite the gem . Thank you also the "They are hand added" how many workers were hand stamping the mint mark ?

Here is a good reference for how the mint mark was added to the master dies for each mint... CHECK IT OUT ! https://www.doubleddie.com/58243.html

Coins themselves were not hand punched one at a time ;) So, it didn't take many people to do that...
each die was hand punched with the mint mark and would process as many coins until the die was no longer good, then it would be replaced with a new die, which would have it's own hand stamped mint mark... which explains why the mint mark moved around within the same year... and why mint mark positions are a reference point or marker when looking to match your coin to a listed variety...

CoopHome has got a lot of good info... Coops schooled me well! HAHA
...So does that little search engine on the left screen of CCF , and plenty of other in the Coin Community.

Happy Hunting!
