My first post, if I'm doing anything wrong please let me know :-)
I was looking through my older coin jar on a rainy day and came across this 1941 S nickel I collected from circulation years ago. The "S" looks perfectly doubled and but nothing else does. I could not find anything about this sort of error anywhere for this year and mint mark. Any comments or ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'm including a macro of it.

It does look like a re-punched mintmark to me.

@koi, first welcome to CCF. Second, I'm not seeing this listed on variety vista and am not convinced it is an RPM. @tng is wicked smart though so I'll be interested to see what others think. Hopefully we can come to a consensus.

Send it to Fivaz-Stanton. Perhaps you will get credit for a new variety discovery.

There seems to be 3 small "spikes" coming off of the back of the S also, any chance to get a microscope pic of it. Would be neat if it turns out to be a new RPM find.

I'm worried this may be a very coincidental contact mark. The upper serif of the "extra mintmark" doesn't look like the right shape, and there is a another vertical contact mark on the very edge of the building just left of the mintmark.

I'm not sure how to respond directly with "tanman2001", but if you see this post What is a contact mark?
I was wondering if this could be a bounce, (I have no technical name for it) of the die on the planchet, if that is possible.

I agree, it looks like damage on that area. The mintmark and the building is the same hit on that area. Create an image that shows that whole area in a square to see if the mintmark is reduced, or normal sized, or enlarged. That way we can check it better to see what for sure is going on. Also take the image right above the coin. Not at a slant or tilt. (That will distort the device)

Just random circulation damage, usually from the edge a coin hitting the surface of another. Most coins have tons of little nicks and scratches on them if you look under magnification. The doubling on the edge of the mintmark could just be a well placed hit.

I think you are describing Machine Doubling (MD), which is very common. That's a possibility too, but it doesn't really look like MD to me. Usually MD would make the mintmark appear thinner.

Here is the 1941 S with more magnification and straight on.
It does look like the side of the building is doubled like the mint mark.

Common Machine Doubling, in my opinion.
