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 9. 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.
