No sorry as the mintmarks were applied to the die by hand, their location varies a little bit. If the mintmark is actually contacting another design element, there may be a preium.

Hello TheNewGuy,

Here is a link to Coin World on this specific mint mark location: https://www.coinworld.com/news/prec...-bowers.html

EBAY sale on 3 May 2020 listed A 1975 D with a "high mint mark" for $499.00; BEST OFFER WAS ACCEPTED. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fr...H_Complete=1

Mintmark location does vary from die-to-die because they were hand punched into the die, as pointed out before.

However, this specific one, the 1975-D 5c with the mintmark nearly touching the 5 is an extreme example. This is probably the most notable and talked about non-corrected, misplaced mintmarks on US coins and would be worth a premium over face value, though the interest in this variety is fairly small. This variety is also pictured in The Official Red Book!

Nice find!

DO NOT SPEND THIS.

This is the same variety that David bowers was offering $1000 to anyone who could find an example, isn't it?

Wow... Thanks a lot for all of the information on this coin!

@Numis-Northerner, I dug up the old thread, it reads.... "I will donate $1,000 to a numismatic nonprofit in the name of whoever first sends me a 1975-D Jefferson 5-cent coin. It has to be a certain variety and in Mint State, however. Read on!"
