Good morning everyone I have looked at this coin over and over again so as not to put it on here if it was obvious that it's not what I think it is but I know what I am seeing and that is a defined D on top of a P. I don't know how this could be possible especially from two different mints across the country from each other. And again I know what I see but I can't explain why so I am asking your thoughts here are a few images...

Good morning Skippy72
An "OK" obverse picture but the other pictures are blurry/pixilated.

Nope. Just a normal coin.

More likely a small die chip near the mint mark.

Looks like a P to me. the D isn't that small. both mint marks are the same size in height so if it was a D over a P somehow, it would look either like a blob, or a "B" or "8" shape. the lower part of the P would be visible in the center of the D.
Damage or a Die chip I think, hard to tell because of the blur, but must be one of the two.

Agree it's a P that perhaps took a hit.

I definitely agree with the size of the mint marks being different if it were a "D" but like I said in the title it's very convincing but I can't agree more about taking a hit or possibly a die chip...
