I do not hugeeyes a "TDO" here (triple die obverse).
However, I do see surface corrosion.

Sorry, but I don't see any repunch. I do see that this coin has seen some flat surface contact.

There is a trident on the rim end of the 2's horizontal bar. That is the only clue (for me) as to the Repunched. But I am viewing the coin in real-time, and lacking professional photography equipment, it's difficult to capture what I/eye see's. Thanks

I have another coin comin'at you in a few minutes...
And again;
Thanks for your time..!

I don't think they repunched dates. The mint repunched mint marks.
So, the coin would have to be a TDO, which should show in other locations on the coin.

Split serifs follow original design. They don't scatter in odd directions.
This is PMD.

I read somewhere that the Mint did reuse dies from year end by removing the last year's date, (in the fourth digit position only, ie. 61; 2; 3; etc).
I agree that the spikes of the trident don't follow common patterns for split serif's!
I have two mint Mark examples, with multiple splitting, that terminate (or begin) at a given point, reminding me of scallop shells. I'll post them later...

Not for modern coins they didn't. This stopped shortly after the turn of the century. What you're seeing on your coin is post mint damage with corrosion.

I think I hugeeyes what you're looking at. In post #4, it appears that the 2 is doubled.
But when I look at your other images, I have to go with PMD (Post Mint Damage).
