But not the shape!
Understanding how dies are made, is the key to knowing that you don't have a large 9 and a small 9 on the same coin. The Mint starts with a Master Hub, which is used to make Master dies, which are used to make working hubs, which are then used to make lots of working dies. The working die strikes the coin. The date is added before the working die step, so if they used a different size/style for the numbers, it would be on many dies and therefore, a whole lot of coins.
The people answering your post are knowledgeable of the minting and die making process. That's why they can correctly say that your coin is not an error or variety.

Exactly how many of the 1.2 billion 1959-D Lincoln cents did you check?
I don't need to read again! You're exaggerating!
