    This 1941 S seems to be large S with a lamination near to the mint mark. 1941 S LG Lam Obv.jpg 1941 S LG Lam REV.jpg

    Either a small lamination or a die crack. I just can't tell. Nice find.

    I don't really see the triangular serif on the lower left part of the S.

    Agree. The bottom of the S mintmark is below the bottom of the nearest window, among other diagnostics.
    Nice find!

    I agree, without the triangular serif, I can’t call it “large S”

    The lamination may have caused some distortion to the mint mark. However, given that the bottom of the windows lines up with the middle of the S, I would consider it a Large S. I don't know how long I have had it. I found this and 2 others in my accumulation from the last 70 plus years. Thanks for all the feedback.
