Seeing that 1989 post reminded me
about the no VDB. Anybody ever find one ?
Maybe post a pic. ? Rarity level ? Premium ?

O.K.

So much for that question.

How about this one. Is there any premium whatsoever for
a "1989" lincoln cent with "NO" "VDB" present on the
coins obverse ?
(one that was never punched) not talking about a worn
coin or sanding or grinding off etc.
Maybe someone knows of the die variety for that particular
anomaly (good word to use instead of error or variety or ?
if indeed I did spell it correctly :)

Thank you for any info that you may supply.

Cute thingy there grace

There is no such thing as the VDB not being punched. It is all part of the design. Letters/numbers/bust/Memorial/Wheats. What happens to them is that the die gets filled with grease or debris or just wears away. The don't punch the VDB, its part of the design. The only Cents without the VDB were the 1909-1917. 1918 to present they are part of the pattern.

Some have asked about my images I use and I'm glad to say, I've completed an Educational DVD of these. Become a supporter of this site, send me your address and I will send you a DVD. Many have loved this so far. I just completed version 11. The most updated version yet. So if you haven't got a copy yet, it is a good time to do so. I also have a DVD and one for windows media player. The one for media player is nice for your computer as it is clearer in images. Let me know which you would prefer. If you are a new member and wish the DVD, make your donation and have them pass on to me where you would like this shipped. Most have really appreciated this to increase the coin knowledge. Thanks for your support!

Thank's

I did not know if it was a die variety or not.
Just a process anomaly.
I am trying to remember where I had read about
that particular year, that it had a premium on it for
that reason (no vdb). probably was one of those "what coins to look for sites" Oh well, I guess someone somewhere thinks they are worth
something.

Remember, "Newbies" fall for anything. Try to sell worthless stuff to a die variety collector and he will say: Yeah, right! NOT!

Yes, that is true for sure.
i remember looking for one since 1990
and had it on my look for list.
never found one anyway, but never really
researched it back then enough. you tend to believe
what you read if it had to do with coins and somebody took the time
to write about it. I know, I have this 1955 penny and everytime I look
at it my eyes seem to cross and I see double :) read somewhere it was worth some money. nah, must be the ghost of Rock N Roll.

I actually have one certified by PCI. Interesting feedback and conversation here. Would like to know more on how this might happen and other comments. According to my research this is quite rare? regards.

There is no value. They used to sell for .20 to .25 cents. The VDB on Lincolns shoulder can be missing due to heavy die abrasion. It can also be from the result of a poor strike or being struck by a filled die. The reason they even sold at all was because someone was touting them as a rare error. It's numismatic baloney:-) If you look at enough coins, you can find NO VDB on just about any date of Lincoln cent due to the reasons stated above.

The fact that it is in a slab, doesnt mean much. It cost somebody some money to slab a twenty cent coin.

It is not a variety.
