Keep in mind, that "mint marks" are the most difficult attribution you will find....

I always recommend, to very lightly and precisely clean the area in question.

:eureka:
You will find, a majority of the time, that the dirt/grime can/will show up as an anomaly when using any magnification equipment for coin imaging
