    Still, it gets struck on the coin during strike from those lines already on the die.
    Sorry about my goof too Ed! Sometimes when my brain tries too hard to think it goes in wrong directions! Coffee does help though

    Here is one to tease the noodle Viv. 1946-S rpm#22 is a variety. Started by repunching of the S mintmark during the manufacturing of the die.
    The thing is , these can only be found in later die states because during the manufacturing of the die the initial S that was punched, was abraded , and die metal was drug into the punch of the S , filling it. Not until later in the dies working life did this filling metal start to break loose and come out like a die chip ( an error) and reveal the secondary S.
    Funny that it took an event , that would have been an error on any other die, to finish creating this variety.

    Thank you John! That's a pretty incredible story about how this RPM was finally able to be seen! A common error unveiled a very cool RPM! Yours is a very nice looking example too! Hope you day has gotten better! Mine has... it just started out in a fog
