Would this count as two mint marks?

@bd251, sorry but that coin is only worth one point since it only has one mint mark. The dolphin doesn't count.

This challenge is incredibly confusing, can you please dumb it down for me and explain what it is we have to do.

What is an OPM I get confused with the 1991 rap song OPP.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

An Over mint mark, is one mint mark stamped over another. I can't think of any coins with two mint marks, since a mint mark is a specific kind of privy mark denoting location. Though there are probably some that say "mint" and have a mint specific privy mark.

Sorry that I was confusing @pt. Both of those are mint errors where either a single mintmark is punched twice or else one mintmark is punched over a prior one.

Added: although now that I look in more detail, your confusion may be summarized in this old CCF thread:

Would something like an S over CC mint mark be an OPM, or is that just a RPM?

At least I think I have these correct--let me know if I'm mis-counting.
