Is this a 1979 $1 Susan B. S blob?

    It is my understanding the S blob on a 1979 Susan B. dollar is only found on a proof coin. I have several of these coins where the S mint mark is clearly defined or filled in to some degree... Only this one coin has the edge around the mint mark which looks identical to the images I've noted to the proof coin.

    The coin is the same thickness and approximate weight as my other coins. I know the blob coins aren't worth much but wanna know if they're out there without having been a proof coin first.

    Looks like it was damaged then worn.

    CN... yes, she has taken some hits. It is amazing what a microscope will bring out now that I have one.

    The S mintmark punch used for the circulation strike dies was the same punch used for the Type 1 S proof dies.
