    While coin role searching I found this 1970 s penny. It seems that the mint mark is much closer than any of the other 1970 pennies that I have looked through. I could not find anything that looked like this on Coppercoins.com. I'm curious if this coin has any significance.

    I am not sure on the terminology either.

    Thank you two. It seemed so odd when I first saw it I thought it might have a chance of being something special. Oh well. I'll hold on to it anyway.
