Just trying to figure out what happened to the initials that should be seen on the reverse. At first I thought it was post mint damage but I'm not sure.
Any opinions?

Possibly broken off the die similar to a broken post on a D mint mark.
You can see some remnants of where the initials are.

The initials are incuse on this design. So they mush have chipped off or got polished mostly off the die. (Incuse on the coin, means they are raised on the die. The reverse die does look like it was polished.

Okay, either way it definitely makes me understand dye deterioration breaking it off or being worn off through damage I can understand. Thanks everyone.

This information is like a jig saw puzzle. Pieces are often found in no particular order. Sometimes they fit together, but like the 1911-D today for me. Seeing this coin and other information I had found years ago, all came together for me today. I just happened to have the images I needed, and the One from the family today was the piece that put it all together. So it takes new thinking sometimes to figure things out. Instead of thinking like a coin, thinking like a die is often need to put things in the right order. It just takes time.

Actually this is the quicker way to learn. What took me decades to learn, now can be learned in weeks. I was always give yes or no answers. Thus it was like learning a new language. But using the images to show what I see and so others pick up on it faster, seems to accelerate new ones here. Soon the students are training new students.
