Hi all! I came across three1956 D pennies- I have read that there were some errors on this particular penny (mostly regarding the mint mark and doubling)

I am having a really hard time trying to figure out if one of these might be one of these errors, and I would appreciate your opinion on this!

In the pic of the three, I think that the one on top might have an off centered mint mark,, I tried to get a close up of it for you to see better.

Do you think I might have anything good here? Or are my eyes just playing tricks on me?

Thank you in advance and have a good day!

Close-ups would help, and we always like reverse images as well. In these pics the coins look pretty typical.

Thanks CoinFrog!
I will try getting better pics next time and also include the reverse sides.

As far as my camera goes, I just downloaded this app called 'Magnify' - That seems to take a better pic than just using the iPhone camera and trying to crop it to size.
Do you recommend using a flash? Or just a bright room with no flash?
Sorry, I'm kind of new to all this- So I definitely appreciate you all helping me with this!
Thanks again!

You have to have a lot closer images to see a RPM (Re-Punched-Mint mark):






These are not errors. They are die varieties. (created on the die)

Close up pics would definitely be useful. Also, remember that since the mintmarks were hand punched on the dies, some variation in location is normal.

and

I don't recommend using a flash for imaging coins. You need adequate static lighting and that will improve the clarity to a degree (depending on camera, of course). With phones, I highly recommend using a clip-on macro lens. They are cheap and abundant and will greatly improve clarity of closeups. Lighting can be tricky because you have to hold your phone camera very close to the subject, but it can be done. Here is an example of mine using a smartphone (12MP camera) and clip-on macro lens:
