This is not an S it's an altered D mint mark and altered after mint.

This looks like the MMS-012 (Extended Serifs) in the images you have posted....

It's not uncommon to find "Proof Coinage" that HAS NOT been well taken care of…
Found in circulation, possibly in a old penny jar, etc.

I don't agree, unless the images are just that bad, this doesn't look like an impaired proof.

To me the OP's mint mark doesn't look like the MMS-012 from CONECA image you posted. It's not the same, the OP's it hooved in the middle, looks altered or something.

Here's another perfect example of not using Internet images for attribution!

What is the consensus- is it an altered mint mark or something else

that S looks pretty normal to me, but I am no expert?
