    Got a new microscope and I'm going through my old coins and found this 1909-S VDB hiding in plain sight! Obviously the VDB on the reverse is really hard to see, but if you look really close I assure you its there

    It looks like a 1919 which is why it went unnoticed for so long, but thats definitely a 0

    Based on the photos you've provided the forum already, it is undoubtedly a 1919S.

    Edit: I should also mention that in 1918 the VDB initials were moved to a less prominent place on Lincoln's shoulder.

    Believe me, and I'm sure I speak for everyone here, I'd love to see someone actually find an 09S VDB in the wild.

    That being said, yours isn't it. No matter how many pictures you post. It's not. You're either trolling or have no idea what you are talking about.

    Again I'll let you know I didn't put this thread up asking anyone IF it is, I said it is. The pictures aren't the best but the most recent ones posted make it pretty obvious that's a Zero. If you can't see it then you're either blind, dumb or lying

    Kevin.
    Take a good look at the images you have posted. They just don't show what you believe you are seeing. You are receiving honest opinions based on the images you are posting.
