I found a nice uncirculated BTW half dollar, 1950-S, but looking at the mintmark, with notches both top and bottom, I would say it is definitely S over S. I need your opinions. And, even if it is doubled, is it significant enough to warrant keeping? Thanks for any help.

There does seem to be something under there. I'll bet @commems will have the answer.

Commems is a CCF member who really knows a lot about commemorative coins. He will eventually see this and comment.

With all due respect to the OP ... the question at hand is not a commemorative related issue but rather a variety/error question.

I have some expertise in the series ... and have avoided replying as I have no expertise in your specific question ... the reason for the various blobs seen in the mint mark.

Suspect our master historian/expert commems might offer a similar reply ... I'll leave that to commems

I agree it is variety/error related, but I try to follow directions, and these stated all commem coins had to be here. There was no var/error sub section (except in modern coins - which named all inclusive coins, - and not commems.)

looks like a repunched mint mark but I aint no expert but they minted a bunch of Bookers so I could see em doing that
just went back and looked at the Red Book and the 50S Booker is the 4th largest at 62,091

This is indeed the correct forum for this question as there is no separate V/E sub-forum for NCLT or commemorative coins. There is not enough activity to justify it.
