I came across what appears to be a 1958-d /S Jefferson nickel. But as you may have guessed, I can't make sense of it bc they didn't make a 1958-s or any S nickel since 1955... I am looking for some well trained eyes for your opinion and how to proceed. Many thanks!

Since that cannot reasonably exist as an S/D, then it is damage to the mintmark. Occam's razor.

to CCF. Looks like a D mint mark that took a circulation hit.

@OtGspartan, first welcome to CCF. Second, yes I agree with the others that the mintmark is damaged. It looks a little bit like an S, but didn't look that way leaving the mint. Finally, your pictures are super, by the way. Thanks for taking the time to make them well-lit, in-focus, and rotated appropriately.

Thank you all for your feedback and warm welcome. I had it narrowed down to either PMD or a repunched D with a counterclockwise 1st or 2nd strike....Yet, the more I looked at it, my mind circled back to D/S.

Do any of you recommend a particular high-powered USB microscope (in the $30-$50 range)? Thanks again!

to the CCF

Looks to me like the downward stroke of the "D" has taken a hit
pushing it inward giving it the somewhat look of an "S".
It certainly didn't happen during the striking of the coin so it is PMD.

Don't argue with an idiot, he will beat you with experience.

Nothing over 150x,needs adjustable lights,the higher the MP the better,the better the stand the better it is.

Also the right side of the mint mark has heavy Machine Doubling. The void is just a contact mark on the coin. Note the other one NE of that area near the rim. Probably a parking lot coin.
