What do the marks-like the 'D' under the date mean?

I suppose you're meaning the letter under the date on a coin??? "D" is for Denver, "P" is for Philadelphia. That indicates the mint that stamped the coin. It is also possible to have an "S" for San Francisco, or a "W" for West Point. On older coins you could also have an "O" for New Orleans, a "CC" for Carson City, a "C" for Charlotte, or a "D" for Dahlonega (on early gold coins).
