This repunched mintmark (RPM) shows
a secondary D completely south of the
primary mintmark.  It is not as bold as
RPM 8.  

There are two ways to distinguish the
two RPM's:  1)  the secondary D is
directly below the primary D in RPM
#18.  In RPM #8 the secondary D is
slightly to the East.  2) the location of
the D in relation to the 9 and 5 of the
date is totally different.  RPM #8 has a
primary mintmark that is much closer to
the date.  

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

This variety is listed in CONECA's top
100 RPM's.
