I've had this 1948 S LMC in a 2X2 for several years and just getting around to looking more closely at it. I waited to post until I was 99.9 % sure it was a RPM. Vista shows it with markers as RPM-001, s/s east, stage A. It's a beautiful coin that I would grade BU. All of the above is my opinion only. .Did I get it right this time? Thanks for your input and comments.

Beautiful coin! I think it's a match.

Nice rpm! This isn't the grading section, but in my opinion there are enough marks on it to take it not come back as BU.
ça va bien aller

The mint mark position appears to be different than RPM-001

Thanks for the responses... If there is a difference in mint mark position, it is very slight. First photo is my cent, Second is Viata. I appreciate all the "teaching" from you guys. It's actually fun doing all the research.

A possibility is Wexler's 1948-S 1˘ WRPM-011, check the marker descriptions for the different obverse and reverse stages (maybe stage C?) here: http://doubleddie.com/1655179.html

The mint mark position looks like it might be correct but I can't make out any markers.

Not a match on any of the listings on V.V.

So it maybe not listed yet, or too minor to list? The Upper west area is the only area I would consider a RPM.

The one thing on RPMs that can't be different is the MM position.

Thanks.. I guess I'm just too old to understand. The mint mark in all areas appears to be a re-punch. It looks like Coneca RPM-003 0r RPM-004. Even Wexler WRPM-008. I do, however, appreciate and respect your knowledge. I'll keep looking and reading and maybe someday I'll get it right.

I think so this coin it is a new RPM. The markers I see on this coin do not fit what we know at this moment. Has some similarity with others but do not fit the study.
