It looks like a letter D (I'd like to see what @Fred Weinberg thinks about it)The inside part of it appears to be the same size as the inside part of the D mint mark.
I have a tile in my bathroom that has an image of Jesus . Do I think its a sign ? NO just Pareidolia .
I don't know what it is. Probably PMD but anything's possible. Seems unlikely but maybe the mint worker who punched in the mint mark dropped the punch and it landed on Abe's jacket. lol
Don't jump the gun, just yet. It could be the result of a dropped element, but I would like to see a better close-up. I don't think it is, but I'd like to at least give the OP the benefit of the doubt.
I tried looking for a chip but also read about a push type of strike and there was an example that might explain it. I just enjoy posting some of the strange things that can happen but also want to make sure I'm not putting a jewel back in change jar to cash in.
Bargainbidder great pictures. i don't see a die chip. i wish i could help more. good luck man....
@Bargainbidder maybe you can see if it is from the top of an R (AMER). A dropped element will be the same size as a filled letter or design on the coin.
Looks like misplaced mint mark “D”
If this was the case, there would be thousands of these in collectors hands. Dropping a punch on the working die would make this mark on every coin the die struck.
