Hello all. Is this just a RPM or a regular RPM? The weight of the coin is a little under but within tolerance I believe and I am sure that is due to just a thick wall but the color is off as well being really orange. The seems to be a few things going on with this coin whether it be mine or doubling or could be Machine Doubling I am not sure so I was leaving that up to you. Also the S next to the mint mark that is showing but it appears to be smaller and there is another one diagonally that sticks out to the left from the mint mark. One more thing I noticed was the doubling that comes out from his face profile and hair along the forehead...

Looks to be damage on the mintmark. I don't see any evidence of an RPM

A close-up pic of the mintmark would help to confirm whether you have a RPM or not, but I don't understand this question.

Ive heard others say the same thing about this coin and I agree with the above comment that this looks like exactly like mint mark damage. I agree because I found three
of these 1974 S coins coin roll hunting yesterday. I don't need better photos. I'm looking at this error on my coins and I
This is definitely mint errors. I say this because not only do I have these coins in my possession (all three in MS÷ condition) I've seen this error in other posts here in coin community. CONGRATS! We found some rare errors my friend. I'll post my photos just as soon as I figure out how to upload them. Also the coin
verity website has a few stages of this error but doesn't have this one listed. It looked like an S over D at first but one of the three I found yesterday is just a mangled blob that looked like damage yet as I said these coins look uncirulated in mint state condition with no damage anywhere else on them. See for yourself. I'm uploading the photos now.

First welcome to CCF. Second, please start a new thread if you will be posting different coins. Of course, you can link to this one if you feel like that connection will help us to understand what you have there.

The 1974 RPM was a harder one to find.

This one was a bonus coin given to me from a vendor that I had purchased several RPMs. It was unknown for years until I was able to take this image. Now coppercoins has several listings. But this one never made it to the three sites.
