I was going through some of my wheat pennies & this one has got me really curious-

On the reverse: the letter "N" in the word ONE- there looks like there is an "r" & "M" stamped in as well.
Also the letter "T" in CENT appears to have something stamped either on top or underneath. I think it might be a "v"?
Also there is no "a" on the end of America

On Obverse:
Mint mark looks like "D", but when I try to look closer, it looks like an "s"

It has heavy environmental damage so, mintmark and extraneous anomalies don't really have any importance. In other words, it's a goner.

Keep searching!

It is what we in Minnesota call a lake skipper.

Keep searching. We have folks report neat finds here almost every day. No offense from our silliness.

Lincoln Cents are considered a Modern Coin, so I moved your post to the appropriate section for the proper attention.

A larger close-up of the MM only might help.
