Someone said they stopped THE OMM in 1990
But this is very clear , they are still using a hand punch.

The post in the center of the D had a chip taken out of it. Not a second mint mark.

I agree, that's a Die Chip, inside the mintmark. It happens a lot, and it's a pretty common occurance.

Yes and just a coincidence that it kinda looks like a letter S now.
