I have photographed this coin 10 different ways trying to capture what I believe is a tilted "S" under the "D." I'm quite familiar with the OMM-1 listed in the CherryPickers' Guide, and this is obviously not that. It seems to me that if dies with an "S" mintmark were shipped from San Francisco to Denver, there may have been several.
This appears to be a tilted "S" west of the "D" with a die break above it. I'd welcome anyone's thoughts.

It's really hard to tell what's going on. Could you please give us a sharper photo, oriented correctly for us to see? Thanks.

to the CCF!
p.s. - could we see an overall photo of your cent, both sides as well? That might be helpful.

This is a die gouge. Youll see them pop up for sale as "Winged D" or "Flying D".

however check Varietyvista.com, die crack is a marker for rpm ( I think RPM-023)

Sorry to take so long to upload these images. I'm not sure they will be much help. Now that I know how to use the image re-sizer on this site, I will try to get some sharper images on here.

I meant to include the reverse photo with my last post. The die break adjacent to the mintmark does appear very similar to RPM #23 (thank you for that resource). It even has die chips on the reverse on the T in CENT, but they do not appear similar to the ones in the photo of RPM #23. Also, none of the other obverse die markers for 23 appear to be present.
This has had me baffled for quite some time. I swear I see a tilted "S" to the left of the "D" but that could just be wishful thinking.
Thank you for your considerate replies and direction on this.
