    Just a quick update, according to PCGS if you follow the link and look at the 1974 lincoln cent they say that it is now legal to own.

    In 1909 the VDB was only struck on the reverse and then it went missing until I believe 1918 when the VDB was then stamped on the lower bust of Lincoln as all the Lincolns are to this day. I have personally seen the 1969-s with true doubling of the initials but I do not have the new cherry pickers guide so I am not sure if this is a new listed variety or not. I do know that there are many Lincolns out there that don't appear to show the VDB at the bottom of Lincoln but I am pretty sure it is due to either clogged dies or worn dies.

    I agree 100 %! If there are only a dozen uacounted for, and it's as cool as it looks, does it have the VDB, from what I see they all should? Weight is another factor, but without a scale look deeper?

    Here's a copy-and-paste from that link - the type was so small I couldn't read it without enlarging it:

    "Large quantities of Aluminum and Bronze-clad Steel 1974 Cents were produced, but most were destroyed. Both are now illegal to own. "

    Bummer if you've got one.

    Re: weird penny

    If you could weigh it, that would be helpful in deciding if it's aluminum.

    I've got a 1975 that weighs 1.4 grams, but that's due to it only being half as thick as a normal penny.

    Re: weird penny

    I found one of these plated buggers the other day. My heart almost jumped out of my chest until it hit the digital scales. I wonder if the guy who plated this thing is somewhere chuckling at me right now?

    LMAO
