If you are taking about a small letter down at the bottom of Lincoln's bust near the rim of the coin, all cent coins since 1918 have had the initials "VDB" placed there. They are the designer's initials. If that's what you are referring to, it's nothing special. Apologies if this isn't what you meant but it's my best guess without a picture.

Incidentally, since this is in the Canadian coin forum and I don't pretend to be an expert on Canadian coins, apologies if this post doesn't make much sense. I assumed that you were speaking of a US cent coin and someone pleae correct me if this isn't the case.

That P stands for post mint damage.

we would really need to see a better picture focused on the area in question because there is some things like a dropped letter that can cause a letter to be somewhere its not supposed to be, but just can't say one way or another from the photos provided

Since this thread seems to be tapped out, would you guys mind if I hijack or resurrect it? I needed some info on a 1975 D Lincoln I recently found. I did a search here and this thread came up. tman19320- I hope you don't mind.

The mint mark on mine seems to be in a much different location then the mint marks I've seem on other 75's and the one posted above on this thread. Is this common for these dates & mint marks? Thanks!









Rest in Peace

The tolerances for Mintmark are in essence anyehere in the field area but not touching another device. Since these were added to the working dies by hand, if an errant punch like this couldn't be repaired (punched too deep)by grinding away and moving, would have made fireld there to deep into die face, they left it there. Common, however many strikes were made with that die, 100K +, as compared to 300 mil...
