It looks like another d, but really faded. I will leave it to the experts. Thank you!

looks like Die Deterioration Doubling, caused by a worn die issue. The die that struck your coin was in a Late Die State (Late Die State), when your coin was struck. http://www.error-ref.com/die-deteri...on-doubling/

These are the known RPMs for the '54D.

How to tell it is die deterioration or a RPM? Die deterioration often looks like lines that flow towards the rim. On your coin I think I see these lines. Also, the device would be raised high above the fields. Die wear all depends on how old the die was getting. But the areas on the devices closest to the rims, often show the die wear more quickly.

Coop is the man once again! It is indeed Die Deterioration, evident in the "flow" towards the rim
