Hello again coin community!
I found this 1959 D with the mint mark being in a wierd place compared to other 1959 D pennies I have, has anyone else seen this before ?
Thanks for looking!

Seen them before. As long as it is below the date and not actually touching a numeral it is within mint tolerance.

I'd keep it as an educational piece on mint mark placement differences.

This is common. It is when the devices are touching the date area, then it is a variety. On the 1956-D cents, there was a die that showed a Punch on the devices, but also a second punch on the other area. It was an extreme example of this:

On the later die states they were polished off the die, but the location would still identify the Die, but without the RPM, they were not as valuable:

1959D-1MM-021
But there was a miss placed example that are listed on this same site:

Note on this one, it is one the last '9' on the 1959-D cents.

Collectors really like when the mint mark is actually touching the date. They are not very common but do happen and you find them time to time. Happy hunting!
