I'm inclined to agree with John. I just looked at the two sets I have, and the mintmark on both Kennedys are perfectly struck into the die by hand, of course!
The image is far too small for me to see it well. Keep in mind that the mintmark was hand-punched into the die, and if it was initially placed incorrectly, there would be a slight depression on the die. This would create a raised mark on the coin. But, this is not the case on your coin. I can't think of anything that would cause this sort of depression on a proof coin. ~ Chris
It is a MMS-2 this MM style shows doubling. It also has some evident die chips
