I have noticed that there have been a couple of people asking about the 1909 S V.B.D cents recently. As this is something I have been trying to educate myself on I thought I would share a couple of the simplest ways to identify the most common fakes.
Below I will show a Fake example with a real 1909 S V.D.B below it.
#1 look at the mint mark
#2 look at the reverse of the coin a real 1909 S V.D.B will have a shallow N
# 3 On the revers of A real 1909 S V.D.B the dot in between the D and the B will be in the center and not to one side.
If you have any more tricks pleas share . Hope this helped someone.
Edit I will try to add the contributions from this thread to the original post as they come .
