Hello! I recently noticed something odd on a 1972 Kennedy half dollar, and I'm hoping that the experts here will be able to advise me concerning whether or not it's relevant. As you will see in the attached photos, there is no mint mark in the usual place on this coin, but there is something resembling an upside down / backwards D floating between the I and the B in "Liberty". Before exploring this further, I guess my first question would be: Would this sort of misplacement even be within the realm of possible errors for this type of coin? Thank you for your help!!

Looks altered. Possible damage on the reverse (not shown) maybe the issue.

The no mm simply means it was produced by the Philadelphia Mint.
Always show both sides of a coin when making inquires, this
can be important in diagnosing what is wrong with a coin.



Correct typo

Thanks for your reply! I'm aware that no mm indicates production at the Pholadelphia mint, I'm just wondering if that D could possibly be a mis-positioned Denver mint mark. I know it's a long-shot, but thought it was worth asking about! I tried to upload more than one photo to my original post, but I'm brand new to this forum and failed to figure out how to do it. Will keep trying! Thanks again!

I'm posting this for a second time, with additional photos: Hello!

Thank you! I tried to add photos to the original post, but failed miserably (total newbie). That would be great if a nice mod could help me out!

don't be afraid to click on buttons and explore the forum, you can't hurt it much - like delete the forum..
At the very bottom of the forum lists you can find an area for 'testing' I use it frequently myself.

Here's a book I recommend for all, beginner to advance collectors.
Lots of clear pictures and explanation helping to clarify if you have real error or post mint damage.
