The us mint used the trumpet tail mint mark(004 variety vista) from 1941 to 1952 and tall mint mark(008) from 1952 to 1974. I submitted pics of my 1968 S penny and an example of the 004 and 008. Which mint mark is my coin? Thanks!

Sorry, I sent 2 copies of the 008 mint mark. Attached is a copy of the 004 mint mark.

This looks like a normal 1968 San Francisco minted cent with a trumpet tailed mint mark, but good eye!

Unfortunately . But if you are looking that carefully you are much more likely to find some real goodies.

Unless it was very common for this to happen; trumpet tail was for the years 1941 to 1952. The 1968 should be 008 the tall mint mark. It was more likely to happen with hand punched mint marks call it human error. Even so, would it not be a mint error?

If a coin has a wrong mint mark design for that year an error?
