Greetings all. This ia a fairly nice 1945-D dime. Very bright. Odd textures on Obverse, but nothing I'm concerned with. Kind of that chrome/frosty/blast white mix/look.

But my goal here is a quick question on the placement of the Mint Mark on this Mercury dime. Never seen a Mint Mark straight up and down, almost twisted in opposite direction of normally being parallel with the "E" in "ONE".

Were these hand stamped? Again, probably a nothing burger, but I just never seen it in this position. Nothing on Variety Vista about it. Maybe someone here has seen it before. Interesting feature.

Figured I would ask just for the FYI. Curiosity. Thx. Here's the Dime:

Yes, mint marks were hand-punched into the die during this era. This looks completely normal to me.
