Hi, first post here. It's a 1940 nickel, the S looks crooked, is this an error?

That's not a mint mark.
If there were a mint mark, it would be to the right of Monticello.
It was put there after it left the mint.
War nickels were not minted in 1940. That S is not a mint mark. The mint mark on the 1940 nickel would be on the right side of the coin next to the bldg.
Kind of looks incused into the field. Probably a counterstamp added after it left the Mint.
Post minting damage (counterstamp)
