I have this 1945 S Jefferson nickel and I have a question concerning the mintmark. The one in question is the same height from the top to be bottom of the field as the other one of mine in pic 4. Its not even shaped the same. My first thought was circulation wear but with the height the same I cant see that much metal being moved. The coin in question weighs 4.86 grams the other one I have weighs 4.82 grams. Although I cannot find anything on any site saying two different mintmarks with the only one being the MMS-003. I am pretty stumped on this one. Could there have been a second mintmark or am I missing something here? The last pic is from Variety Vista.

How about a circulated RPM ? Check out VVs 024 or 025. That's all I could add...good luck

It's not an RPM. I've looked through every one of those thinking that could have been a possibility.

Mintmarks were punched in by hand, some of these large mintmarks have stronger, more complete punches than others. The mint employee put a bit of elbow grease into that one.

It's pretty strong to say the least but as strong as it is I don't see how a perfect serif coming down from the top curl could have been made from that as the punches themselves were just so deep. tanman, regardless, this "Super S" is going in a 2x2.

The side of devices also can be affected as to whether the die was over polished or not. If it were an issue, all the other devices in that area would also be affected. Check to see if that is the case?
