This one seems extreme. You can see on the bottom loop that there are a good number of split serifs.

Normally I'd think this would be a die chip or a broken post but the split serifs match the S design.

Thoughts?

The concept of maturity is complex. While one's capacity to be mature can be correlated with age, someone's overall maturity and respect for life is not. Maturity is formed through experience and perception.

I don't see the serifs. I always miss them, is there a way you could point them out as a learning exercise?

I think this is more of a damaged mintmark punch issue. Doesn't look like a typical split serif.

Fair point, it is quite unusual. Wonder what type of damage happened to the mintmark punch.

As far as I know, you don't normally get split pieces of metal like that.

Possibly the punch was falling apart.

I agree with Tanman2001. Also a slight MD on the date.

Looks like a cud as I don't see anything on the top of the s, only in that gap at the bottom. Still very interesting.

The lower loop area is from a damaged punch. Even the RPM-001 shows the same thing:

You can see the same affect on the lower loop. But this is a North and that damaged punch is not part of the RPM.
