Here's a 1886-S that appears to have an S/S mint mark (VAM4) or maybe a re-punched mint mark (VAM2).
Perhaps it's just a messed up mint mark?
Are the pictures detailed and clear enough to determine what it is?

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi, okiepb. What a nice coin you got.

Kindly post a pic of the MM if you can. Focus on the eastern vertical top bar of the 'S'

You might have noticed that protrusion on your coin(upper curb bar) and looks like a split on the lower curb end, the reason you are asking possible VAM4 or VAM2. It's hard to decipher though with the pix you posted.

The experts can help if you can take close up pix of your mint mark.
