We don't need to see the molecules. Too close is too close. The mintmark is not a RPM. It is from a damaged punch that you can see on even different denominations as well:
These are not RPMs. They are many dies creating the same shape. A RPM is a visible double punch showing mintmark. http://www.varietyvista.com/02b%20L...2DRPM001.htm Note the direction on this RPM. It is from the same damage mintmark punch, but not the mark north of the mintmark. That is the RPM. Not the damaged punch issue.
We'd love to help you, we really would. With your camera, photograph your coin directly (no monitor shots), both sides and areas of interest. And specifically use your words to describe exactly what you see going on. We look forward to seeing what you have.
