Philadelphia minted coins did not have a mint mark. Philadelphia minted coins were copper-nickel clad and business-strikes. The one in question is silver and proof - minted in Philadelphia as a presentation piece.

Yes, from 1971 through 1978, Eisenhower dollar coins minted in Philadelphia had no mint mark.
