Hi. This is my first post so please be kind.

I noticed most of my Denver minted coins have a different reverse than this one, as seen in the pics of both torches. I'm thinking this is a Type 4 reverse because the pics I see of Type 3 (which this coin should be) show flames like on the left side of the pic with two flames. There are also some other minor differences, like the width between the AM of AMERICA looking 'close'.
Is this common? I've never read about it but it makes me wonder if there could be an S under some of these 'filled mint marks'.
Thanks for any help!

. Over mint marks=OMM stopped in 1955. The coin on the left is more worn down from circulation. Both coins look normal to me. Give it a bit and more members will chime in.

Impossible to have a "S" under the mint marks.
Looks like a regular worn quarter.

Looks normal to me. After looking at lots of pictures of other 1976 quarters, I think that the mark on the main flame (center) was caused by a hit by another coin.

Sometimes a broken post that forms the center of the 'D' mintmark can break off below the fields, thus making the top center of the mintmark to appear different looking:

But this is not a OMM. Just a broken post below the fields.

Sorry...i never should have said 'it makes me wonder.' I never said I thought it was an OMM. I just said I wondered. I have to agree with everybody on the OMM but that is not the title of the topic. if I thought it was OMM I would have simply said that.

DEARBORN - thanks for addressing the question I asked. I see the ding on the center flame that you refer to and agree but I am talking about the separations between the flames.
machine wear or Die Deterioration is not going to move the shape of the flame.

look at main PCGS images of the S clad and S silver issues and compare flames. they are different and in such a way as matches these two. you can see it very, very easily.

Thanks for trying to help. If I have an OMM question, I know where to go.
Cheers.
