It's very faint and kinda hard to get a picture of but I can see a s mint mark clear as day when I kinda move it around in front of a light. What do y'all think?

@cop, yes your pics are good enough that I see what you are talking about. Have you done a side by side comparison of the shape, size, and orientation of this feature to an actual S mintmark? I suspect that there are significant differences.

Just a coincident mark due to circulation and toning?

I thought the S mint mark for these was above the building not beside for the War Nickels?


Edit: to elaborate, if it has no mint mark it is a nickel clad coin struck at the Philadelphia mint, for this coin to be a 1941 no mint mark to be re struck one year after mintage at a completely different mint in San Francisco seems highly unlikely, and if it was I imagine the S mint would be more visible. Just my 2 cents. The only possible Overstock for an S like that would be a 1941S Overstock by the 1942 Philadelphia mint, and the mint mark wasn't fully destroyed by the over stuck but just as unlikely.

Just realized your inquiry was about a mule not an overstruck, either way I believe a mint mark would more be easily visible and if it was.

Matter fact I can see it better when I just hold it in front of me and it is actually raised towards the back of the s. I also have a 1941 s nickel I will do a side by side comparison this afternoon and post it. I got this nickel at a estate sale, it was in a bag with a bunch of other War Nickels and they just thought they were regular nickels so I grabbed them. All the nickels in fact look very different. I will post them in a bit. See what y'all think.

Also if I look at it real closely I can see a s mint mark on the front as well.

When a mint mark is added to the die, they are punched into the design on the die. Thus the void created on the die will show what mint it is from. Your coin has no mintmark. So it is from Philadelphia. This is a type one nickel for this year. The Philly mint didn't have mintmarks that are raised above the surface of that area.
Type 1 And 2

2 Business and proof nickels:


So yours is a type one from Philly, that doesn't have a mintmark. (It would be raised if it were there)

Just a contact mark on the bottom of the '2'. Note it is incuse. Damage is incuse on a coin. On an over date, the affected area will be raised, not incuse:


Note the affected areas are raised, not lowered on the affected area of the design.



Just like an over mintmark:


Raised, not lowered on the devices/fields. Lowered is contact to a coin.

CoopHome: what should I see on a 1943/2 nickel on the overdate that year? What should I not see on a variety coin?
