    "S" is significantly North, and West. Also, tilted. Where are my haters?? I need to hear how they only see wear and damage. 20190724_225525.jpg 20190724_230142.jpg 20190724_230242.jpg 20190724_230113.jpg 20190724_231959.jpg

    At a glance it looks like a D over S. But the closeup shots are too blurry to confirm that. The coin is also pretty beat up. So its more likely PMD from the D getting hit, and stretching.

    Is there a known variety of D over S in a 1955 dated cent?

    I checked about 3 or 4 sites and couldn't find any listings for a D over S.

    So Meow thinks it need a high resolution close up picture, with light sources from multiple angles.

    Meow holds a coin like that in one paw right up to the microscope camera, and with the other paw holds a LED light to shine at it from different angles.

    Actually they tolerate you pretty well, as long as you don't get too delusional.

    Well, you know. Cats are special. And they can grow on you.

    It does look good at a glance, with those pictures. But would you not think if it was legit, it would be quite a find. So would it take this long to discover such a major variety of a 1955 penny in 2019?

    Leave me out of this! I'm one of the haters! I don't respond to this guys threads. Especially any title with the word Discovery in it! The cat gave great answers.. But he will soon be a hater also.

    it's too much damage without seeing close pics within focus. I will say PMD

    Is he going to pet Meow against the grain?

    If this coin were not so beat up I would be more inclined to say it could be D/S, but I'm not a believer until Fred et al weigh in. Were mint marks punched in at the branch mints or a central location? If they were punched in at each branch mint it seems unlikely this is D/S.

    Skeptics do not a hater make.
