Looks close to FS-102 in Verity vista, but my S looks upside down? I need your expert judgement thanks.






New images, Thanks for the help

I don't see a match from the three sites. But does look interesting. The second image looks like it shows a south. But Not sure if it is damage on the mintmark or a RPM for sure. The bottom loop looks taller than a normal one. (but sometimes images can be elongated if the coin is placed at a slant? I would keep this one safe for now. Depending how it looks in hand it maybe be a slight bit of damage (under the top loop on the middle loop) of a RPM. So you might try taking a few more images to see what is going on. Try with the light coming from the south 6:00 direction and rotate the coin horizontal with the date. (The reflection on the lower loop maybe making it look like something is there, when it really isn't?)

I think coop is right (different MM positions), but better pics will help.

Just my 2 cents as en entry level collector, but I've found a lot of Lincoln cents in all relevant decades that have enlarged mint marks like this. Usually each one results in a lot of inspection and Google research. This looks like a PMD "smush" to me, where the S has been mashed by something post mint like in coop's image. There don't appear to be any doubled lines marks at all, DDO, RPM, or MD. It does give the appearance of the S being upside down, but I think it is just PMD. I wouldn't offer an opinion if I hadn't seen this so many times and dismissed it after an hour of searching. Happy to be corrected by the bona fide experts!

Cheers!
