Ron Guth:

Two different 1944-D over S Cent varieties are known, but only one (FS-511) qualifies as far as PCGS is concerned. On this variety, the underlying S is much higher than the D. The top of the S is clearly visible above the D and diagonal of the S snugs up against the inside top of the D. This variety is fairly common, with over 120 examples graded in Mint State by PCGS (as of 2/17/2011).
