Mint mark error 198D upside down D

Pictures will be necessary to identify for sure, but what you are describing sounds like a 1980 where the 0 took a hit and flattened the side.

Welcome to the Forum

As stated, pictures will be necessary to confirm but from what you say, it sounds like damage as there is no way that a D can be upside down during the minting process unless it was in the die in which case all coins produced from that die would also be upside down.
