It looks like it's just a small die chip with some corrosion or staining around it. Does it stand above the flat area of the coin? If so, does is the "S" that you see raised or flat with the surface? I can't tell from the photos. I don't think it's a blundered mint mark. I've never seen anything like a mint mark in that area.

There was no 'S' mintmark used from 1955-1967. In 1968 there were Business strike coins with an 'S' until 1974. Proof Coins started to be struck with 'S' cents from 1968 forward. So it can't be an 'S'.

There's also an issue with die abrasion as well. Note the scratches?

Good questions and photos. I can certainly understand why you would ask.
