    VDB showed up

    My trips to Druid Hill Park in Baltimore City have been two-fold. For about the last five visits I've been collecting firewood (downed limbs from an oak tree). Made my final trip late this afternoon and then detected for an hour. Got three keepers: a brooch with clear and blue cut glass pieces, a fired round ball, and a 1909VDB wheat. I've dug a lot of wheats over the years but don't recall getting a 'VDB' before.

    You may want to clean that yawning Lincoln a little more McCDig. It may be a DDO.

    Did they really have to punch a hole in it.

    Great find! At least they didn't punch a hole through an S-VDB.

    Thanks Tommy! I haven't found many 1909s, much less a VDB; this may be my first. Anyway, this is another learning experience for me, another benefit of the hobby.

    Thanks Bob. Congrats on your find from earlier. Will be renewing my permit this week. We are still allowed to detect the parks here in Baltimore and I hope it stays that way.

    I agree Jeff. That one got hit real hard from the reverse, as evidenced from Lincoln's damaged face. Anthing that's been in the ground that long is subject to a beating.

    It took a direct hit. Have found wheats that have been shot, been run over by a train, and been mowed.

    Congratulations finding a 1909 VDB! The coin was fairly good shape until it got punched and lost.

    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9
