    Looks like plating bubbles on your '87D cent.... Cheers, RickO

    The mintmark on the 87 does look funny/interesting and too bad that the 30s wasn't a year later a 31s is one of the keys in the series

    Saw a similar specimen, if not that '87 D, on my phone the other day. Looks like an OMM/ RPM. Did you refer to CONECA ? I think there are tons of varieties listed there, as well.
    Here is a link to the aforementioned:

    Thanks, I have alot that I will be asking advice on, appreciate the support that the member have provided. This one is similar to the 87 D posted earlier. Also does the, 63D look like a double mint strike D over P. Looks different.

    This 1968 Lincoln S, shows doubling on letters IBE on liberty and also the year.

    Can't be D over P, they didn't use P mint marks on cents in 1963.

    @Vin71 The 1987-D has a corrosion spot next to the mint mark. Your other coin is damaged. I hope you keep collecting and good luck finding more interesting coins as the ones you posted here. :)

    Just a question, if there is corrosion mark, how do you explain the doubling of mint mark.

    It's not doubling. It's just corrosion that formed around the mint mark.
