I believe the mint mark has been repunched. I am not a collector of error coins but thought this was interesting.
The coin can be viewed at:

Probably an RPM but we can't tell what the photo is from.

There are a few 1878-S RPMs, but that's probably the only pre-21 date that people aren't really looking for repunching to attribute the coin. Most 78-S are attributed using manually engraved feathers on the reverse and obverse repunching or doubling. I can't tell from the picture if yours is a RPM or not.
