A little back story...I hit a "nice" sized jackpot in Vegas and instead of just depositing the check into my bank account I wanted to get back into coin collecting and buy something nice. So I headed down to a coin shop, talked to the employee about the amount I wanted to spend (2 to 3,000 dollars, just a percentage of the jackpot) and the different coins that would fit into my price range. You know what I bought that day?.....About 120 dollars worth of books...because the employee told me read the book, before buying the coin.
I'm by no means a pro and will never claim to be...just my 2 cents

IMHO, also buy a book on taking pics of coins. The better the photo you post the better we can help.

@hlw, first welcome to CCF. Second, I don't think that anyone is trying to criticize you, but rather help you learn. You will notice that I removed one of your statements above.

These new pics are better than your first effort so thank you for that. I agree with MD on the '70-S, but am intrigued by the potential RPM on your '68-S. Here is a link to the varietyvista page on that. Of the three listings, your seems closest to 1968-S RPM-001, but you should definitely do a more thorough comparison of mintmark location. Here is a link to get you started:

But again that is Machine Doubling. The 1968-1972 cents had a lot of Machine Doubling on those years. When you see the date and mintmark affected in the same direction, it is always Machine Doubling. So the best way to learn about Machine Doubling is to stop looking at the outside edges of devices. Look at the centers of the devices for the enlarging of the devices. If there is no enlargement there, move on to the next coin. Because when you keep looking at the outside edges, it is always were Machine Doubling is found. I see you have some 1968 cents as well. There is an issue with a doubled working die that is fooling some of the sites. When you look at that year on the coppercoins and Variety Vista sites, you will see they have a lot of doubled dies from all three mints. But note they are listing the same type of working hub doubling.
Coppercoins 1968D-1DO-001-003 are all the same doubling, but have different mintmark locations. Same on the Philly examples, 1968P-1DO-001-003, 006,007 again are all the same working hub examples. 1968S-1DO-002, 004-006, and 008. These are all the working hub doubling.
Note Wexler's comments:


Variety Vista, Note 4 out of 5 are the same exact hub doubling. DDO-004 is different.
http://www.varietyvista.com/01b%20L...O%201968.htm

http://www.varietyvista.com/01b%20L...201968-D.htm
Four examples of the same working hub

http://www.varietyvista.com/01b%20L...201968-S.htm
Note even some proofs are also show the same working hub doubling:
001, 003, 004PR, 007PR, 009PR. These are easy to find that year. That was what gave me the heads up on this working hub. (I would save the examples you have, but not buy any of these going forward. When reality hits, then a lot of these will be put up for sale) So they are common to find with so many dies created with this hub doubling.

But the best to learn is to search the sites, ask questions on the forums. Most of the time, the books only collect dust.

Correct. Note the overall size of the mintmark is there. The Machine Doubling is reducing what you are looking at. A RPM would enlarge the mintmark showing a spread of a second or more punching, but only in the shape of the mintmark punch.
Note the top loop is reduced. If the MD hadn't reduced the mintmark, it would be normal. If it were really a RPM, it might look like this:
