If you are taking about a small letter down at the bottom of Lincoln's bust near the rim of the coin, all cent coins since 1918 have had the initials "VDB" placed there. They are the designer's initials. If that's what you are referring to, it's nothing special. Apologies if this isn't what you meant but it's my best guess without a picture.

Incidentally, since this is in the Canadian coin forum and I don't pretend to be an expert on Canadian coins, apologies if this post doesn't make much sense. I assumed that you were speaking of a US cent coin and someone pleae correct me if this isn't the case.

That P stands for post mint damage.

we would really need to see a better picture focused on the area in question because there is some things like a dropped letter that can cause a letter to be somewhere its not supposed to be, but just can't say one way or another from the photos provided
