Found this one today. Am I seeing things or is there something going on with the mintmark? Might be trying to hard and just a distraction, but it caught my eye. Looked through the VV RPM listing, but didn't see anything like this. Looks like a faint outline of another "P". Thanks

Not a RPM. Over abraded die?

More of a coin wear issue, not a doubled die. When the tops of the devices are reduced, then the base part is showing wider because the devices are tapered. Just from a normal die. The coin is part silver, so it is a keeper.

Thanks everyone- I didn't notice the lamination issues. I tried to get a better photo, but not sure I did. I will be keeping the coin. I do like the "shadow" P even if it is just a wear issue.
