    The 1st and 2nd look to be a normal MMS-004 http://varietyvista.com/01b%20LC%20D...k%20Styles.htm I can not tell on 3 or 4 as the pics are to blurry... Here is a link to a known inverted 46S MM http://varietyvista.com/01b%20LC%20D...946SIMM001.htm Hope that helps a little!!!

    Those don't look like the inverted one.

    On 46-S they used 3 different mintmarks.
    MMS-004, 006, 007. Only a few of the inverted ones which are 006s (but they made lots of normal 006s too)

    They had three styles plus the inverted ones. The 3 styles are, ball serif, serif style, sans-serif style all used on 46-S.

    People often get confused spotting the inverted ones because it's tough to see plus there are normal ones with a similar weak/missing area on the lower curve to trick us.

    I agree. None of these are inverted. None of these are the type of the known inverted mintmark either. As mentioned already, they should be the MM-006 or Ball serif style. Keep hunting for them! They are out there. I found my 5th last month.
