This 1969 s nickel seems to have a re punched mint mark, and seems very similar to the one I compared to on variety vista

Did I in fact finally find something, or just another spender?

Hi, Hokuto7291 & Greasy Fingers. I am a student of the hobby and I want to learn.

I might be having Pareidolia but I want to learn, too. This is just a point of my learning experience & Hokuto7291's...

For Hokuto7291... I looked at the site you indicated and noted that RPM008 did not match your coin. I went to Wexler's and noted that the bottom curve is somewhat similar to WRPM-001 still not quite. The upper tip is comparable to none from Wexler's list nor Variety Vista. The MM of your coin looks good though.

Let's wait for the other experts opinion on your MM...

Thanks....

Note the affected area is right in line with the way the metal would flow towards the rim. It is die wear, Not a RPM. If you looked at other devices on the coin, you would see the same thing on them as well. Metal movement of the die towards the closest direction of the rim. Die event. Not a variety.

Sometimes the answers may not make sense. But when you consider the full picture, things do fit into place.
1. The die that struck the coin is in its LDS die state. Note the flow lines on the fields on the date area. (first Clue) Then note the design above the mintmark area. Note the flow lines and the device is starting to crawl towards the closest rim. With the mintmark closer to the rim, the mintmark is showing movement towards the rim also.
2. Coin condition. It looks like this coin has been out there since its release into circulation. Note the cont marks on the coin and the rim area? Note the highest points on the design? What used to be a raised area, now has a flat spot at the top. The date is also showing this. This is called circulation flattening. Aging of the coin.
So knowing this, you realize the the coin and the die that struck the coin was showing wear. You factor this in when looking at the coin, then you start to see there is more than just an answer, but a reason for events happen to coins, events that happen to dies when coin are struck. Seeing the larger picture, then you make allowances for these when you spot them on a coin.
