Thoughts on an "uncirculated" Denver Mint penny. Found this in my father's old coin collection, and have a relative that insists that it is valuable because of the "D" on the face side under the date of 1964. I have no clue where to start... help!

PS. The penny is inside a sealed plastic sleeve, so the photo isn't great. The photo gives the impression that the penny is scratched, but it's the plastic that is scratched and not the penny itself.

The "D" is a mintmark that merely means that it was minted at the Denver mint. Your penny is a Lincoln Memorial penny and bears no special collector value beyond the apparent fact that it is uncirculated, which means that it is in good shape. That might net you a few extra cents but there is nothing "special" about your piece beyond the fact that it is in good condition.
