This repunched mintmark (RPM) shows
a secondary D completely northwest of
the primary D inside the 9 of the date.  
Most of the secondary mintmark shows
under the tail of the nine, just touching
the  primary mintmark.  In early die
states the top of the D can be seen
above the tail of the nine.

The secondary D can be seen better in
earlier die states.  

Finding this variety can prove to be
difficult.
