1968-1974 had business strikes and proof coins those years. This is not a RPM. It is an issue with a damaged mintmark punch. Thus the lower loop inside had the damaged punch issue. I got a whole roll of cents and all 50 were having the same issue with a damaged mintmark punch. So when you look at cents that year that area RPMs, note the same thing can often be seen on several that year/mint.

Note most of these have the same damaged mintmark punch, but that has nothing to do with the RPM.

Proof coins are minted with special dies and planchets. They are pressed at least two times with higher tonnage than business strikes.There are different types of proof coins,brilliant proof have a mirror look with no frosting effect. Cameo proof that has a mirror background and frosted devices to varying degrees:cameo-deep cameo-ultra cameo.

@John1 just by looking with his trained eyes..he knew business strike. How would the beginner know?

Research and a lot of years of practice.

The proof coins have the mirrored fields:


Also note the devices. How much more crisp they are, even the bust is stronger.







Note even seeing them side by side makes it easier to tell:


















Hope this helps. I have a lot more. I didn't even include the matte proof coins. (sometimes it takes looking at a lot coins to start to see the differences)
