I know this coin is not exactly beautiful to most people but I think it's in decent condition considering how long it has been in the wild.
Was just wondering about the mint mark possibly being a RPM. I'máalso curious about the issue that caused the date to look like this.

Doesn't look like an RPM to me. You might have to inspect the top part of that D more closely. For reference, check out:

Looks like the punch was tilted with the top being stronger on the mintmark, the bottom weaker. Not a tilted RPM, as the serifs are not affected.

Ok thanks for letting me know. Any clues as to what caused the details in between the 1 and 9 on the date? Is it possibly a defective planchette?

Checking some examples on PCGS, the devices seem a bit smaller on your coin. (Usually a die polishing issue) all the ones on their site were showing a lot of Struck Through Grease issues. But notice the Left date (1776)is larger than the right date. (1976)

Grease Fill make the devices look wider as they fill the narrowest area of the devices. (top)
When a dies fields are reduced, then the devices will look smaller. I think your coin had those 1976 devices polished. Why? Haven't got a clue.
