I'd like opinions please. Is that 2 notches on both serifs?







Sorry for that one picture is sideways. It looked fine but don't understand way it's turned.

Looks like a RPM to me.

Thanks everyone. TCD I saw VV#004 I wish their pictures were clearer. Also more of description somewhat Coppercoins does.
My MM looks closer to the date? That's if I'm doing it right. Also (IF) mine has 2 splits at both serifs would that be D/D/D?
I've made an overlay from both. VV is under mine which is the darkest. You can sorta see theirs sets below mine.
Hope this isn't too much. Just trying to figure out this stuff.

Firstly, those are some very nice pics - Very clear and good coloring.

Secondly, I uploaded a modified pic of your mint mark and would like to know if it looks like you have a piece of raised metal where the black arrow is pointed &/or a raised ridge where the blue arrows are pointed?

The MM location is extremely close to RPM-3 [slightly east maybe].

Here is a Demonstration of a rotated RPM with only 2 Ds. Notice the 2 serifs on both sides. I stick with my opinion on it being RPM-004.

I don't think it's a question of IF it's a RPM (it certainly looks as if it is), but which one. I agree it looks most like RPM-004. Nice find!

Its not RPM-004. Your MM is higher. The placement is a better match to 1MM-007 on Coppercoins. Try to find markers and see if thats a match. Could be a different stage

Crosses over to WRPM-008. Wexler has markers described on several stages. Check there too

Thanks to everyone for your input. I checked the sites for markers. Nothing was on mine.
CentSation: Thanks about pictures. Where your arrows are pointing it seems to be gunk didn't want to try and chisel them away.
Location is close to VV RPM-3. Mine looks more East & North? The post I did 1/12 @3:03 if I did it right. Dark RPM-3 is lower than mine.
Here's a picture with different lighting. Looks like the vertical bars show up.
