Hi, everyone. I need help in determining whether this 1969 LMC had a MM struck by grease (i am picking up phrases from the experts ) thus, its disappearance or there was no MM at all. Initially, my naked eyes saw a small MM which I thought was a "D" MM but the mint set was indicating Philadelphia & San Francisco mints. So, I thought the MM might be a small "S". When I looked under the usb scope, I could not see "S", not "D" & more so, not a "P." I thought it was the plastic of the mint set causing me not to visualize the MM. I took the coin out of the cello & took pictures...for your eyes to see what I could not express in words. Thanks in advance to the experts...

I can't see much from the small pics. Some larger pics will help.
Rest in Peace

Mint sets then had all three mints. There were some(very very few) instances where there was a goof and a mint was missing or duplicated... But you should have one of each if mint pack. No "small" S's that year.

Newport shows a die gouge/sctatch/indent, something dented die that just appears as a letter, mind tries to tell us it is, but isn't.

Thanks, Crazyb0 for pointing out the info. I looked at the mint set and I found the LMCs with MMs "D" & "S." So, the coin that I took pictures of was suppose to be the Philadelphia LMC. Thanks again.

That's pretty weird. Maybe Die Damage? I don't know for sure.

Or coin contact. The mint sets are babied like the proof sets. They are pretty much the same or worse than OBW rolls. I gave up buying mint sets in 2000. My first year was 1999. So I see no benefit for these. I will buy rolls of cellos of mint sets and proof sets though. The 80's are the more interesting ones. Some RPMs there on the Denver coins.

My project today was looking at 1969-S cents. I was noticing a lot of MD 1969-S cent submitted, thinking they were the big DDO. All that money wasted. They could have learned here what to look for.
