Probably S-5, with the coin too worn to see the faint re-punched flag of the 1 sticking out into the field.

Hard to tell much from the obverse, but overall I'd guess F-15 perhaps. I don't think this is an alloy impurity, but rather some mishap has befallen the obverse. Likely a details coin.

Looks like a double punch to me except.... why is there no part of the 8 below the 8? As much as there is in the top I would think there would be alot below? That make sense? Is this common on cents?

A re-punched date usually only shows traces of the original punch, that is, areas that were not completely effaced before the second effort. These "leftover" bits from the first punch are particularly common on IHC from the 1860s. Think of it as a bit of cake still on your plate after you've asked for seconds.

Guess I'm still not understanding it. The first punch was lower than the second punch. It was re-punched higher, this leaving the 8 under the 8, showing in the top loop. Where did the bottom of the first punch go? It should also be showing below the bottom loop, just like the top shows in the middle of the upper loop? I guess this is just over my head.
