Hello,
I was wondering what type of variety this would be if any? :

Why do you think this is a variety, it helps to be more detailed. Thanks

I apologize, I forgot to add that portion. The D appears to be touching the bottom of the 9 and 5. I have looked at multiple other 1953-D as well as other 50s from the Denver mint, and none appear to have the mint mark as close to the date. This is with the emphasis on multiples being hundreds out of what I own.

Mint mark locations do vary and that is very common and normal since they were hand punched until 1990.

Paul or Daniel
Quick question on this subject. Somewhere I think I either read or heard a nickel in which the mint mark is up and to the right of the date which is a error/variety. Sorry I don't remember the date. So out of curiosity, could this one fall into the same group or am missing something? Not disputing your comments on this at all. It really is all about my curiosity.

Of course mint marks that are way out of place, will command a premium…
... & Mint marks that are touching a device will also command a premium, but I have not seen one yet!

Hi Paul, So say if I were to find a coin with a D that is partially overlapping the date or something similar that would be something worth a premium? Thank you, I am just trying to learn more, I am just recently starting to get into errors and varieties.

HI claudewill1, if by chance you found a coin with a mint mark touching a number lets say on a 1953 D, with the life of a die, producing several hundred thousand coins, and 66 years later and such an obvious error I would think it would have been found by now. I looked to see if there was an RPM with a mint mark in that location and couldn't find anything that looked right. However, the one in your picture, there looks like an interesting anomaly to the south. But much clearer pictures would be needed to seeing if that is really anything at all. I did happen to run across a thread where there was a discussion of mint mark placement on the 1953 penny. When I was looking at the 53 D, it looked like they were several different styles or types of punches used during the year. There are all sorts of shapes of dies. Now maybe it is because the had an 83 - year man punching it one day and the next day it was a 28 - year - old trainee 6'3" 240 lb. bodybuilder that punched the next day and punched twice as deep as the older gentleman. There is a picture of a coin with your mint mark on it, a guy nicked named it the "high D". Here is the link: (I hope it is ok with Daniel.) 1953 D High D Mint Mark.
