    Found this in a MWR today. This was one of only three wheats in a batch of $10 worth of pennies. The V.D.B is pretty worn, but it's there. Only the second one I've found in 10+ years of coin roll hunting. Click image for larger version.

    Check your 1918 pennies too because they put the "VDB" back on the front this time.

    Nice find! Congrats!

    IMO, that 1909 VDB is at least a strong VF and maybe even an EF. The reverse bottom is not a strong strike and that affected the strength of the VDB, but the coin grade itself is high and the overall coin's appearance is appealing. I was expecting to see a worn AG or G cent and was surprised at this one. I think it may be the nicest one I have seen come out of a roll. Thanks for sharing the pic.

    I was 19 working at a gas station. A guy comes in driving a BMW or Mercedes in a suite. I know he is going to pay with a credit card so I get the form ready. (this is back when we swiped the card in a machine that transferred the info to the invoice/receipt) Also, these types always filled the tank and didn't care if they were on a round number like you would if you were paying with cash. He stops the pump at some odd number like $24.73. I start writing the number down on the invoice waiting for him to come up to the window and give me his card. He hands me a bank bag and says there is exactly $24.73 in there and leaves. I go through the bag and there are shiny new wheat pennies mixed in! He was short on the count but I was OK with it as there were about 20 1909 vdb's, all uncirculated! Fond memory from the 1980's.
    Congratulations on your find and good luck to you.

    That sure beats my story about the guy who came into the gas station where I was working nights (1960's) and bought a pack of smokes and paid w/ a BU CC silver dollar. As he turned around to go he said :" by the way these things are heavy, could you change them for a Twenty?" he counted out 20 more BU CC's and i gave him a twenty dollar bill. I'd show a picture , but I don't have them any longer. Can't remember what happened to them.............h

    Believe me, after I saw the V.D.B., I flipped it back over immediately to double-check for any sign of an S!
