It is not a Mint Error.
As Paddy said. The E is damaged.
It's not a Mint Error of any kind.
Copper is amazing. It can be moved, changed in different forms.
Check out this thread I created -
There is no reason to strike a 5 or a letter S over any other letter.
Welcome to the neighborhood!
The sad thing is that we get a lot of people coming here after they have stumbled across a "numismatic know-it-all" on BoobTube. Most of the time, these geniuses could care less about the accuracy of their information. All they care about is the "likes" they get.
Stick around! You'll learn a lot more here.
appears to have an "S" or a "5" over it." is correct, it appears to be.
What you have is not quite an "S" looking and not quite a "5" looking damage hit. But it's "close enough" to an S or 5 to think it looks like one. It just happened to take a hit there and push metal over to make it kinda look like an S or 5.
The hardest thing about coins and damage is learning to be unbiased in what you see.
Bronze, Copper.. Same thing
For people who want to know more about the difference:
