A grandfather's pocket piece will bring you wisdom if you keep it.

Other than that, I know nothing.

Well, whoever added that glob of metal to the reverse ruined a pretty nice looking 09 VDB.

Looks like at one time it was a stick pin. The blob is from soldering on the pin. Traces of the pin along the N show that on the finiashed pin the obverse of Lincln would be upright while wearing it. The lack of wear would indicte that once it broke off the pin it probably was not carried as a pocket piece. It wouldn't takke long as a pocket piece to produce more wear than this coin shows.

Plus also looks like at least the Obverse was plated to make it shine as you can see where some of the plating has come off.
