Is this a double S?

    ok this is a 1954 s penny that I found. It seems to me that there is a double S on it. You can clearly see the top has to parts and where it begins to curve from the back to front there is a second line and at the bottom tip there appears to be a second on just not as pronounced as the top. Take a look at a pics a let me know what you think. I am pretty convinced that this is a double S and not a die chip or strike doubling. Any one have any idea what this would be worth?

    I will post a pic of the whole coin tonight if I get a chance. I have about 3 rolls of 1954 s pennies. Last night I pulled about 6 coins out and found another variety. I found a 1954s-1mm-10 on the coppercoins site. These 3 rolls that I have, seem to have a lot of chips and cracks on them. I even found one where the date and mint mark is so full of cracks that it looks light lighting bolts are going across them. I quickly went through a few more and it seems I might have a few extra varieties at first look. I will put them under the microscope and post what I find.
