Mint marks varieties are the most difficult attribution there is.


Using an online image to confirm any variety, is not a good practice at all, ...much more so for mintmarks.
You would need to place arrows at/circle the area in question that you are asking about.

More than likely caused by circulation issues and toning.

:agree:

I agree with both Paul and Daniel. As Paul once told me, "Your trying to Hard". Also if you are using a USB type Microscope you need to search on the lowest magnification you can get. Another thing to keep in mind are some more words of wisdom from Paul "Resolution over Magnification"

Thanks
