Hello everybody!

I assume I will be on this forum a lot, I just started coin hunting and collecting recently. Today I got my USB microscope and coin mats in the mail and I found a questionable coin that I think maybe worth some looks.

It's a 1954 Nickel and it shows signs of an S over S mintmark. I know there is also an S over D but this doesn't look like that....this is the first error coin I've found so it's exciting. I hope it's really an error!

Thanks to anybody who reads, looks, and responds I'm looking forward to getting into this community!

to CCF. Little too much glare, but it looks like MD not a OMM to me.

OMM would be a D over S. A RPM is a S/S. but as John1 mentioned, this is Machine Doubling. Note the outside of the device is affected. The contour is removed. The affected are is flat shelf like. Just MD as mentioned.

Note on these examples, the mintmark is enlarged, showing spread. If there were just enlargement, it does count. It has to show spread between the punching of the mintmark punches.

Yes, I believe it's Machine Doubling.
