found this guy in a roll today. are my eyes deceiving me? It appears to be a P mintmark, yet I thought that philladelphia didnt include mintmarks in their coins. Is it a D mintmark thats been damaged? Theres no signs of damage. any help would be appreciated!

2017 cents have the P mark for Philadelphia mint. Now if you have a 2017 without a mintmark, that might be something special.

You guys answer even seemingly silly questions like this one very well and respectfully. I had never seen one before, so I was confused. thanks everyone for the replies.

Yup, cents had the P for the Mint's 225th anniversary.

Yeah. They were allowed to put a P mint mark on them for the 1 year, 2017, to commemorate a big anniversary for the mint.

Normally Philadelphia made the dies for the other mints off the hub and they put on their mint marks for quality control, so no mint mark meant Philadelphia. It was a way of recognizing Philadelphia on the cent for 1 year.
