VDB on the converse at the lower part of the coin. So presently for the financial matters example of market interest and what it means for cost. In case you had a 1909-penny in “great” condition it would be worth around 75 pennies, in “mint” condition it would be esteemed at about $14.00. In case you had a 1909 with VDB on the converse in “great” condition, it would be worth about $1.80, in “mint” Coin Master( I cannot clarify this ) the worth is about $9.00 ( the main clear justification behind the penny with the lower mintage being worth less in mint condition then the plain 1909 in mint condition, would be that in numismatic records kept by the evaluating administrations, there are likely more 1909 VDBs on record than plain 1909s) If you had a 1909s in “great” condition it is valued at $37.00, in “mint” condition about $120.00. Presently assuming that you were adequately fortunate to find a 1909s with the initials VDB on the opposite in “great” condition it is valued at $350.00 and in “mint” condition it is valued at $680.00 or more. Not terrible for a penny.
In all mint piece types and series there exists what are known as “key dates”, for the time being lets simply say they are significant due to various variables (another large subject), yet that they are significant in gathering coins, everything being equal, not pennies. The “key dates” for the Lincoln penny 1909-1958 are:
The semi-key dates, additionally important, however not quite so critical as the “key dates” are: 1910s, 1911d, 1911s, 1912s, 1913d, 1913s, 1914s, 1915, 1921s, 1922d, 1923s, 1924d, 1926s, 1931d, and 1933d.
This takes you through the “wheat pennies” 1909-1958, alongside keys and semi-keys every series of coin has Error assortments, Die assortments, and twofold kick the bucket assortments which are additionally worth more than the normal date coins. These again are subjects in themselves yet a concise depiction is expected to make you mindful of what to search for in gathering coins.
Blunder assortments are any condition, which might have existed bringing about a coin being struck and getting into course in a state of appearance to be other than whatever was planned by the U.S. Mint. Essentially said assuming it appears to be unique than the wide range of various s because of a mint slip-up and not altering or destroying by a person, than it is a blunder, and they will generally be worth more.
Twofold Die assortments are really blunders in light of the fact that the coin in the wake of being stepped doesn’t leave the bite the dust however stays in the kick the bucket and is struck again making portions of the plan be copied. Some of the time the copy is truly observable other twofold pass on assortments require an amazing amplifying glass or magnifying lens to see them.
