After coming across this coin last night and ultimately determining that both "Ps" pictured are virtually the same size + the unlikelihood of PM discoloration coincidently / randomly mirroring the size/shape of the mint mark, leaves me to conclude that 2nd "P" resulted from some sort of striking error.

Note to show size comparison, the last photo is a "tape over" of the mint mark.

Any thoughts / impressions (other than laughing) would be greatly appreciated.

I think it's a coincidental stain too. Definitely looks like a P, but doesn't match the shape of the mintmark whatsoever.

yfzman66-My Man. 1 "No-P" and 1 "Yes-P" = still in the game! (I'm also looking up Pareidolli...what Dearborn said).

Just to be clear, my "P" v. MM comparison referred simply to size. The MM on the coin is deformed, whereas the "P" has more definition or maybe my Pareidolia is kicking in.

Looks like a corrosion spot. Note how it radiates from the center. If it were a mintmark, it would be raised. It is level with the fields. So it is not an extra mintmark. If it were, there would have been a lot found though the years on the other million coins struck with that die. So it is not a RPM.
