Help identifying mint mark on 1981 Kennedy
This is my first post on Treasurenet. I love the site, very informative and has been a big help being that I am new to CRHing...
I was searching a box of Kennedy halves and this 1981 coin really stood out... the mint mark almost looks like a filled P (i know blob mint marks were quite common in the early 80's) but there is a horizontal line coming out of the bottom of the P... it kinda looks like more than just a filled P but I'm a newb to this and I'm not sure what else it could be...
If anyone could help me figure this one out I would really appreciate it...
Btw is this the right forum to post a question like this?

i'm no expert, but i think the filled dies don't command a premium.

yeah you are correct... i was wondering if this is something other than a filled die...

R.I.P. Rich Hartford, You'll be missed.
based on all the scratches and wear, it is likely not worth anything, but good eye!
