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).

What is value one cent coin 1955 d missed below the year?

July 5, 2009 In 1955 there were 3 US mints in operation. One was in Philadelphia, one in Denver and one in San Francisco. The Denver mint has the letter "D" under the date on the cents made there. The San francisco mint has the letter "S" under the date of the cents made there. The Philadelphia mint does not put a mintmark under the date of cents made there. So if you have a 1955 cent and there is no "D" under the date, then the coin was minted in Philadelphia. These coins are fairly common and even in uncirculated condition they can be bought for about $3. Circulated coins can be bought for as little as 3 to 5 cents each.
