Mint marks were punched into the die by hand back then, so their position can vary considerably. This certainly is an extreme example. Can you enlarge that close-up?

The mint worker must of had a liquid lunch that day. It is a bit unusual to see a mm so close to the number,
usually they are somewhere below. This would not be rare though as there would probably been at least
800 thousand Lincoln's struck from that die, more than likely more.

Agree. While not crazy common, mint marks in very close proximity to dates are occasionally seen--especially on wheat cents from the '50s.

Well a lesson is learned. You now know that is normal, and you can move on to the next coin. But if you have a question, always ask. The dumbest question is the one not asked and the student assumes something instead. Ask. We are all family here and lessons learned, helps speed up the search for the real coin you want to find.
