Looks like a regular size mint mark on top of a large mint mark. Coin is late die stage and just wondering if they re-engraved the mint mark, which in this case sits very high up, even higher than the date. Just curious.

1935-S Lincoln Wheat cent with very high standing sharp S

TB ,I think you are seeing a Deep, well punched mintmark that is showing the designs supporting shoulders. A part of the punch not normally seen. Combine this with a bit of wear to highlight the top and it does look like a small S perched on top.
Sometimes when a mintmark is deeply and well punched it can look much different than it's brethren.
This 1946-S of mine is a sans serif style mintmark but deeply and squarely punched so that it does not have the thin top curve that is normally seen. It does look like a totally different forth style mintmark for 1946 , but isn't.

Agree, this phenomenon is not unusual.

The only re-engraved dies I'm aware of in the Lincoln Wheat cent series are the bizarre 1939 cent, with enhanced vest lines, wheat grains, and a quirky dot in EPU, and the two re-engraved proofs in 1950 and 1953.
