The mint mark on this one looks like it's over the tope of another mark, which had been rotated slightly differntly. I swear I see the curve of an S running through the D.

It looks as though the word GOD is stamped over something else with the G kinda broken.

Also the arches of the memorial building look awfully busy. I think I'm seeing outlines of people but I can't get them to focus very well.


Thoughts?

Looks like some split plating issues along with corrosion AKA Zinc rot.

It's not a double mint mark. The distorted metal is making it appear to be doubled.

The 'S' mint is a proof coin. So there is no way it could have been a D over S. The Denver mint makes their own dies.
