1941 Mercury Dime

What is that mint mark?  It looks very strange to me.


I think you are referring to the engraver's combined A & W to the right of liberty's neck. It use to fool me too!



As for problem, is the In God We Trust slanting down towards the right?

Is that a hole in Liberty's neck right below the In God We Trust?

If it is, both problems may have been caulsed by the same impact.

I don't know how, but it makes sense to me.

I don't know about a die chip. That looks like the die was punched in error right about in the spot where the mintmark should be punched. It's probably a very rare die variety worth a couple jillion bucks.
