I see the top of an 8 in the denticles below the 8, but I think I also see something below the 7 and I don't see that variety anywhere (something below both the 8 and 7). Am I seeing things?

I'm pretty sure the mintmark is repunched, just like FS-301 and 302.

Thanks for your help!

I can see the 8 in the denticles when I click on the enlarged pictures you provided. I'm not sure about under the 7.

The best assistance I can give is a link to the online version of the Double Dimes book by Brunner and Frost which by chance mentions misplaced digits http://doubledimes.com/1875S-Summary.html

I'm glad it was helpful for you as I simply do not have the fine skills needed to help narrow it down further.
