Could be D/D but would need to see this at different angles.

1938 D/D is always to the side the D/S is usually below but has a lump at top of the D this one
to me looks like d/s but more south was trying figure out if there are different varieties of the 1938 D/S the

mint mark on this coin is so flat and not well defined so its very hard to tell

Repunched mint marks can be at an angle or direction and there's some that don't look like the "book", and there's new varieties discovered all the time.

e, i just don't see a OMM/RPM here....from these pics. i do see what your pointing at 'under' the mm....it does not 'look like' another mm to me. i know these slabs all to well. if you spin it around & look at it, what does it look like then? whistling2:

Also must consider the possibility of a broken mint mark punch. The D mint mark on these are not typically "filled".

Flipped it over still has a slight double to the bottom same as pictured i think Daniel is right about it being a broken mint mark punch The D on this coin is a little larger then a normal D and very thick its almost all the way filled
