Thank you gentlemen for your knowledge and wisdom of this subject. I'm new at this and have lots to learn. With your kind of help, knowledge, and wisdom it will be easier for me in the future. I guess I have loads to learn about all this process. I will be looking at all my other 1980 penny's and checking them out. I was very fortunate and did find a 1980 s coin, so I can use it under the microscope and see everything for myself. In the meantime, I'm off to my next coin which is a 1981 d half dollar which weighs 10.4 grams. It has a dent on the rim and a bump on the obverse and reverse of the coin. I will be posting it as soon as I get all the necessary pictures. This man take awhile... widegrin

While I can make out the "S", I cannot see the 'D'.
The 'S' is definitely not a mint mark.

Need a better photo in the area of the mint mark, and need a shot of the reverse.

I don't see anything either. Usually when another mint's mint mark is over another there's record of the dies being shipped to the other mint. So this just doesn't happen without notice, but there's some where the mint that received the dies from the other mint didn't completely remove the previous mint's mint mark. I don't know of any for 1980, so it could be a clash mark that wasn't removed, but we really need better images.

It looks like a contact mark to me, can't be an S for this year.
