#177149 - 10/03/04 06:40 PM Wheat Pennies

Does anybody like to collect wheat pennies? I have a good amount of them in my coin collection. I am only missing five for the entire series. Rarely do you see any of these in circulation.

Anytime I find a wheat penny in my change, I keep it. I guess most people do if they find them which is why we don't see them much anymore. I remember when you could still occasionally find mecury head dimes and buffalo nickles. Those are really rarities! <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Having a complete collection of wheat pennies is pretty cool. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> What five wheat pennies are you missing?

I am missing the 1909S VDB, 1909S, 1911S, 1914D, and the 1931S. These are known as key dates and semi key dates for a series.

I have a few wheat pennies and a few buffalo nickles. They are rare as I too hold on to them. But a collection, not mine. That is awesome.

Hi, CCeditor! What is the VDB after the 1909S mean? I recall seeing it before, but I just can't remember what it means.

I have a couple of collections, too. I'll check and see if I have any duplicates of the ones you need and let you know.

Hi, hugs! It is really awesome to have some of the old coins. Do any of your buffalo nickels have dates on them? How about the old mercury head dimes? They were really pretty...alot different than the Roosevelt dimes we have now, right?

You know what name they call us?

Trish, the VDS and 1909S, I believe relate to where and when they were stamped, or minted. Personally I don't collect coins (stamps for me thank you). But last summer I got back a 1950 ten dollar bill as change...I keep it in my jewelry box as well as some african coins from when my grandfather went on african safaris in the 60's & civil war era gold and silver pieces. =]
Coin collectors are also called 'Numismatics' and a good site that I found was coinworld.com.

VDB stands for Victor D. Brenner. He was the person that designed the Lincoln penny. On some of the 1909 pennies, his initials are found on the reverse or back side. They were removed in that same year, and returned in 1918 on the obverse or front side. The S is a mint mark from the San Francisco Mint. I hope that helps. I found a 1925 penny yesterday in circulation. It was in pretty rough shape. A Coinworld magazine subscription is going to be one of my Christmas presents from my mother in law this year.

I love wheat pennies. I started collecting them when I was a kid. I have no idea which I have and don't have. I do have a 1931 penny, but not sure of the stamp on it. I have the hardest time with that part. Some large, some small, D, P, VDB. The oldest penny I have is a 1914 one. i think or its a bit older than that.
