ah Coop, you f-ed up. I still needed a little more clarification and using the term "incuse devices" instead of "incuse mark" I found more information and ended up finding this gem on google: http://goccf.com/t/353014

that explains everything so much more clearly and it turns out you're the author as well so I feel like you were holding out. but seriously, thanks for the help. I almost feel bad for wasting your time but I do very much appreciate it.

The MM on your coin would not be incuse.
That MM, like all primary MM's, is raised above the field just like Washingtons bust or the other letters.

(The die which strikes the coin is the opposite of course to produce the raised design on the coin.)

gotcha. I see that it's raised above the field but I saw it as the outline of the "D" being pressed into the field around the nub that forms the inside, but I get what you mean because it's still above the flat part.

The reason the center of the mintmark is not formed is that the post that would have formed the center of 'D' has broken off the die. Thus that incuse area inside of the mintmark was not formed because of the missing post. The missing post area is now a void. Thus the reason why it is filled in.

ah, interesting. i'd ask you why they're not considered special but I looked through my little stack of quarters and I've actually got like 3 so i'll assume they're common. I'm pretty sure I have a philly mint filled as well and I've only got like 3 or 4 P mint mark quarters. i'd just never paid attention before and I'm thinking it's more common on quarters cause I don't think I've come across any pennies like that.
