I just cant seem to figure out the mint mark. Its just a little too wonky for me. I posted not long ago about a 1916 D my dad had, but I've found this one too. Some expertise is appreciated. I wouldn't want to assume its something its not. I can't do much better on the resolution. I had done some of my own research and tried to investigate the top diagonal angle of the mint mark, and its placement. I have my own opinion (an S), but I am no expert. Thank you

Unfortunately it looks like an S that was damaged.

OR could be an S over D. But I really think it's just an S.

Sorry, it's doesn't look to be a "D". Rather, it looks to be an "S".
