    1909 s vdb *UPDATE*

    Here's a coin to make your heart jump out of your chest. Found this one at a local school, about 4" deep. The scan doesn't do it justice - it would be VF+ coin without the corrosion. Oddly, and I know this is hard to believe, but this is the second one I've found. Got one in PA when i was a teenager and immediately sold it to buy a new detector. Life is weird sometimes.

    That is a FIND! I have found 2 1909's this year, one is a vdb but no mint mark...there is a scar where the mint mark should be. The other is a plain 1909. Congrats on the Key wheat!

    Welcome to T-Net and keep the finds coming!
    hope all your goodies are worthy of posting.

    BTW... that coin would go MUCH more than VF without the corrosion.
    Truly a beautiful coin.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Hey I think I have one of those in a safe with a bunch of other coins. I think mine is just a 1909 VDB...so the S is the real keeper, yes?

    Re: 1909 s vdb

    Congrats on an amazing find. I am surprised you found one in PA. IN all of my years of detecting on the East coast, I dont think I found an "S" or "D" coin dated earlier than WWII.

    Yeah, it sure made my day. As for finding 2 of them, I guess you just never know what might pop up. I have yet to find a large cent in 28 years!
