agle-eye cherrypicker Timothy Wissert has reported the first known mint state Sans Serif mintmark style on the 1946-S Roosevelt Dime.

The Trumpet Tail and Ball Serif mintmark styles have been known on the 1946-S dimes for years, but the Sans Serif mintmark style was thought to have been first placed on the dime in 1947.  A couple of years ago Gene Bruder reported an XF specimen and not long afterward a VF specimen surfaced.  Recently a second VF was reported.  If you have a specimen in your collection, let us know.  Also the Ball Serif is unknown combined with the ODV-002 design.
