I have no idea.
Looks like it was PL/DMPL when new. It's a shame someone hairlined it to death. :evil:

Thanks John,
Someone did a good job
Taking that s off with the chisel
Then polishing the whole coin off harshly
Probably,to hide
Any residue of the s that might have been left
On the coin
But what would have been the purpose?

I've seen plenty of added mintmarks that were the wrong style.
