    How do D over S mint marks happen?
    Does San Fran send their coins to Denver to re mint them?
    Or, does someone get sloshed down in shipping?
    Given how many there are, they party a lot!

    Several ways actually. One is that the die maker uses the wrong letter punch to strike the die face, notices his error, grabs the correct punch and restrikes the new MM over the old one. It is done on the die that strikes the coins. The error is then transferred to the Planchet during the coin striking process.
