I inherited my grandfathers coin collection. I have slowly been going through them. He left no information about them so each coin is a research project it seems. I am going through the Barber dimes. I have an 1896 S that appears to have doubling on the reverse. To me it seems to have rpm s/s however, I cannot find any reference to this error on the internet. All I have found is another 1896 s/s on eBay for sale. Our coins look similar. Anyway, would someone with more knowledge and experience mind taking a look? I would greatly appreciate it!

Please no photos of monitor screens.
Does not look like an RPM to me: http://doubleddie.com/971920.html

Please correct your title - I think you mean "repunched".

Agree that this seems to be a small buildup of crud rather than a RPM. On varietyvista, there is no listing of a RPM for this date:

David Lawrence "Complete Guide to Barber dimes" for 1896-S says "don't be fooled by shelf-doubled S/S coins." Perhaps referring to what you see here. Neither Bowers' guide nor Cherrypickers lists anything for 1896-S. I don't have Kevin Flynn's book. 1896-S is a relatively scarce date. What's going on with the copper-looking plug behind Liberty's head?

By the way, welcome! and great job figuring out how to post photos straight out of the gate! Show us more of your grandfather's coins. There are some cool things to look for in the other Barber dimes.

Thanks for the welcome! And yes I read through the how to post an image tutorial closer than I read through the rules on what type of images not to post. Oops. I apologize for the microscope screen photo.

I have a feeling that you guys are correct about the mint mark. I'mstill a novice when it comes to grading and identifying double dies and other errors. Well.. really a novice at all things coin collecting.

I'd love to share some more of these Barber dimes I am going through. I actually need help with the grade of a 1895-P. Should I post here or start a new topic?

Again I thank y'all for the welcome!

Your screen photo didn't bother me in the least. It very clearly shows what you're asking about. Others taken that way are so pixelated or whatever you call it that they're not useful.

Here is a direct link to the Lawrence book online. While it's old, it still has a wealth of useful information about Barber dimes.

If you have any 1899-1905 dimes, particularly S mint, there are a bunch of transition varieties to look for. Some are not documented, they don't have any extra value that I know of, but fun to find. There are many repunched dates and mint marks throughout the series. The 1905-O "micro O" is popular, as well as the 1901-O over horizontal O.
