No. Shortly after being issued, complaints about the initials arose and as a result they were removed but not until nearly 28 million of the coins had been minted. The initials again appeared on the obverse side of the coin in 1918 and remain there until today.

Please check your coin again and post a new question. "VDB" refers to the designer's initials that appear on the back of a 1909 Lincoln penny, and all 1905 nickels were struck at Philadelphia. San Francisco didn't start minting nickels until 1912.

What year penneys are valuable?

When you say year pennies, I'm assuming that you mean what years on the penny make it valuable. Well, the grand-daddy of all lincon pennies is the 1909-S VDB penny. You can find the initials between the bottom of the two wheat stalks. (1909 was the only year that had the initials VDB (Victor David Brenner) between the bottom of the two wheat stalks. Also, all the 1909 pennies are worth quite some money, but not like the omg I'm sooo rich type. Other key and simi-key dates are the: 1914-D (only 1,193,000 minted) 1922 no D or S on it (mintage unknown) 1931-S (only 866,000 minted) Here are coins that the mint made by accident: 1955 double die (doubling in everything) 1972 double die Hope this helped!

What is the difference between a 1909 vdb and a 1909 vdb s penny?

The main difference between a 1909 VDB penny and a 1909 VDB S penny lies in the mint where they were produced. The 1909 VDB penny was minted at the Philadelphia Mint and bears the VDB initials on the reverse, while the 1909 VDB S penny was minted at the San Francisco Mint and also bears the VDB initials. The inclusion of the "S" mintmark on the 1909 VDB S penny indicates its San Francisco origin.


How many P VDB pennies were made?

I'm assuming your question refers to 1909 Lincoln cents minted at Philadelphia and with VDB on the reverse side. According to PCGS, mintage figures for all 1909 Lincoln cents are: 1909 VDB: 27,995,000 1909-S VDB: 484,000 1909: 72,700,000 1909-S: 1,825,000 Remember that Philadelphia didn't (and doesn't) put a mint mark on cents so there technically isn't a "P" cent, and all cents minted since 1918 have Victor D. Brenner's initials on them.

You have an 1909 wheat penny with no mint mark at all Is there an average value for this coin?

Well, if it just says 1909 without a S, D, or VDB on it, then its probably around 5-20 cents. The reason for that is because there was 72.7 million pennies that was minted in 1909 (without S, D, or VDB mark) and pennies that are worth alot have around 0 to 2 million pennies minted in that year.
