1959 D Lincoln Cent Error Type ?

Holiday Greetings to ALL !

I picked up a 1959 D Lincoln Cent in change yesterday.
Your truly always checks the change, and this coin has
some interesting negative imprints on the obverse.
It appears that there are residual letters on the coin -
roughly about three strikes, made by another cent (obverse)
at an angle, aligned 5:30 - 11:30. The rim of the secondary
coin is also visible (shown).

Anyone have an idea if this is a mint mechanical error ?
